^^THIS  —  the  third  edition  of  "  New  York  in  the  War  of  the  Rebellion  "— 

ill      is  published  as  part  of  the  annual  report  of  the  Adjutant-General  of 

the  State  of  New  York  for  the  year  1908  in  accordance  with  the 

provisions  of  chapter  433  of  the  Laws  of  the  State   of   New   York   for   the 

year  1909,  by 

NELSON  H.  HENRY, 

The  Adjutant-General,  S.  N.   Y. 


^^^•^HE  compilation  here  submitted  is  the  result  of  devoting  for  twenty- 
m  *m  five  years  almost  all  hours  not  demanded  by  official  duties  to  the 

A  m  L  collection  of  the  data  contained  herein.  The  work  was  com- 
^^|^F  menced  in  1883;  after  the  most  strenuous  labor  the  first  edition 
was  published  in  1890;  followed  the  same  year  by  the  second 
edition,  which  corrected  unavoidable  typographical  errors  ;  this  —  the  third  — 
edition  contains  some  corrections,  changes  and  additions. 

The  data  were  obtained  from  official  or  equally  reliable  sources  ;  in  many 
instances  estimates  became  necessary  and  these  were  invariably  based  on  the 
most  conservative  foundations. 

This  is  not  a  work  of  fiction,  it  is  composed  of  bare  facts;  it  is  not  a 
work  of  comparisons  ;  it  is  a  record  of  the  State  of  New  York  during  a  time 
which  weighed  heavily  on  her  sons  and  daughters,  made  as  complete,  correct 
and  concise  as  it  was  practicable  to  make  it  and  its  existence  is  due  in  a  large 
measure  to  the  Adjutants-General  of  the  State  from  1883  to  date,  to  Colonel 
J.  W.  Kirkley,  statistician  of  the  War  Department,  and  to  many  officers  of 
New  York  Volunteers  and  other  gentlemen  too  many  in  number  to  mention 
by  name,  whose  information  proved  valuable. 

The  work  consists  of  six  parts;  each  part  and  division  is  preceded  by 
remarks,  which  explain  its  scope  and  intent. 


Part      I.  In  the  State. 
II.  In  the  field. 

III.  The  roll  of  honor. 

IV.  Sketches  of  organizations  and  register  of  officers.

is  aimed  here  to    place  on  permanent   record  as  concisely  as  prac- 
ticable,  the  stand  and  action  taken  by  the  citizens  —  sons  and 
daughters  —  of  the  State  of  New  York  during  the  War  ;  to  recite 
or  to  attempt  to  set  forth  the  causes  which  led  to  the  secession 
movement  of  the  Southern  States  would  be  foreign  to  this  aim. 
The  people  of  this  State  accepted  the  result  of  the  political  canvass  of 
1860  in  their  usual  patriotic  spirit  and,  notwithstanding  all  that  had  passed, 
were  not  willing  to  believe  that  war  might  not  be  averted. 

When  the  Legislature  met  on  the  first  day  of  the  new  year,  1861,  the 
Governor  in  his  annual  message  discoursed  the  attempt  at  disunion  with 
firmness,  but  also  in  a  conciliatory  tone,  stating  that  the  State  of  New  York 
was  ready,  in  all  honorable  ways,  to  aid  in  reconciling  estrangements,  and  as 
willing  to  guarantee  the  rights  of  the  slave  States,  as  to  defend  her  own. 
In  opening  the  Assembly  the  Speaker  referred  to  the  perils  which  environed 
the  country,  to  the  duty  of  the  representatives  of  the  people  in  the  existing 
crisis,  and  to  the  importance  of  united  councils.  In  the  Senate,  a  leading 
member  of  the  party  which  had  opposed  Abraham  Lincoln's  election  sub- 
mitted a  series  of  resolutions,  asserting  it  to  be  the  religious  as  well  as  the 
patriotic  duty  of  each  State  and  citizen  to  preserve  the  Union,  and  requesting 
the  Governor  to  tender  to  the  President,  in  the  name  of  the  people,  the 
militia  of  the  State,  to  be  employed  in  his  discretion,  in  enforcing  the  laws 
and  maintaining  the  Constitution.  On  the  following  day  there  were  intro- 
duced in  the  Legislature  resolutions  which  received  large  support  from  both 
parties,  and  recognized  slavery  as  a  disturbing  element  in  the  National 
councils,  and,  to  the  end  that  this  impediment  to  harmony  be  forever  removed, 
proposed,  after  the  admission  of  Kansas,  then  not  yet  a  State,  to  divide  the 
remaining  territories  into  two  States,  to  be  admitted  as  soon  as  the  inhabitants 
thereof  should  adopt  a  constitution  republican  in  form. 

Pacification  in  sentiment  and  preparation  in  act  were  the  order  of  the 
day.  Select  committees  on  federal  relations  were  formed.  Bills  were  brought 
forward  for  the  more  complete  enrollment  of  the  militia;  to  prohibit  the 


io  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

sale  of  munitions  of  war  or  the  loan  of  money  to  States  in  rebellion;  for 
defining  treason;  for  providing  arms;  indeed  for  giving  form  in  every  way 
to  the  sentiment  of  the  people.  These  measures  were  but  a  prelude  to  many 
others  of  like  character  recorded  on  almost  every  page  in  the  legislative 
journals  of  that  session.  The  members  of  both  branches  were  united  in 
action  as  to  the  duty  of  the  hour,  and  the  State  officials  were  in  harmony 
with  them. 

The  united,  firm  and  dignified  stand  of  the  State  of  New  York,  coupled 
with  changes  in  the  President's  Cabinet,  and  a  disposition  on  the  part  of  the 
General  Government  to  stand  by  the  Union,  reanimated  public  confidence  and 
strengthened  the  hopes  of  many,  but  to  be  disappointed,  for  adverse  forces 
were  still  at  work. 

On  the  9th  of  January  the  Star  of  the  West,  a  swift  merchant  steamer 
chartered  by  the  General  Government  in  New  York  city,  and  sent  from 
there  on  the  night  of  the  5th,  loaded  with  needed  supplies  and  men  for  the 
relief  of  Major  Anderson,  was  fired  upon  in  Charleston  harbor  and  fire  was 
continued  after  the  captain  had  displayed  the  flag  of  the  country  —  of  the 
United  States. 

The  news  of  this  act  aroused  the  people  of  this  State  and  of  the  whole 
country.  Joint  resolutions  were  promptly  introduced  in,  and  speedily  adopted, 
with  but  three  dissenting  votes,  by  the  Legislature,  referring  to  the  outrage 
upon  the  Star  of  the  West;  to  the  seizures  of  National  property  by  Southern 
States;  to  the  treasonable  avowals  of  southern  Senators;  to  the  value  of  the 
Union  and  the  necessity  of  its  perpetuity;  hailing  with  joy  the  special  message 
of  the  President,  in  which  he  declared  his  intention  to  use  the  military  power 
against  all  who  resisted  the  Federal  authority,  and  tendering  him  whatever 
aid  in  men  and  money  he  might  require  to  uphold  the  authority  of  the  govern- 
ment; they  also  expressed  gratitude  for  the  courage  and  patriotism  of  those 
representatives  and  citizens  of  and  in  the  South,  who  labored  to  save  their 
States  from  the  vortex  of  secession.  These  resolutions  truthfully  reflected  the 
sentiment  of  the  people  of  the  Empire  State,  and  copies  of  them  were  trans- 
mitted to  the  President,  the  Governors  of  the  States,  and  to  the  United  States 
Senators  from  this  State. 

In  the  South  these  resolutions  did  not  meet  with  favor.  The  Governor 
of  Virginia  understood  them  to  be  a  declaration  of  the  readiness  of  New  York 
to  coerce  the  slave-holding  States  into  submission  to  Federal  authority.  By 
one  or  two  of  the  Southern  States  the  resolutions  were  returned  without 
comment.  The  Convention  of  Georgia,  then  in  session,  as  a  response  to  them, 
adopted  resolutions  approving  the  seizure  by  troops  of  the  State,  of  Fort 
Pulaski,  and  requested  the  Governor  to  hold  the  fort  until  the  relations  of 
Georgia  to  the  United  States  should  be  determined. 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861  n 

On  the  24th  of  January  the  Governor  transmitted  to  the  Legislature  the 
resolutions  of  the  General  Assembly  of  Virginia,  inviting  all  states,  willing 
to  unite  in  an  earnest  effort  to  adjust  the  existing  controversies  and  to  afford 
adequate  guarantees  to  the  slave-holding  states,  to  appoint  commissioners  to 
meet  in  Washington  on  the  4th  of  February  following.  He  recommended  the 
appointment  of  a  commission  as  requested,  and  that  it  be  composed  of  men  in 
whose  character  and  patriotism  the  people  could  have  full  confidence;  he  also 
urged  that  any  proper  effort  should  not  be  left  untried  to  maintain  by  peaceful 
means  the  Union  as  it  had  existed  for  almost  a  century.  Gladly  responding 
tc  this  invitation  of  Virginia  to  aid  in  effecting  a  settlement,  if  possible,  of 
the  serious  and  important  questions  agitating  the  public  mind,  the  Legisla- 
ture, a  few  days  later,  elected  as  commissioners  from  this  state  Messrs.  David 
Dudley  Field,  William  Curtis  Noyes,  James  S.  Wadsworth,  James  C.  Smith, 
Amaziah  B.  James,  Erastus  Corning,  Addison  Gardiner,  Greene  C.  Bronson, 
William  E.  Dodge,  John  A.  King  and  John  E.  Wool.  Mr.  Gardiner  declining, 
Mr.  Thurlow  Weed  was  appointed  in  his  place ;  on  Mr.  Weed's  non-acceptance 
Mr.  Francis  Granger  was  selected  to  succeed  him,  and  took  his  seat  in  the 
convention.  The  proceedings  of  this  body  —  the  Peace  Conference  —  were 
without  results.  It  could  not  be  otherwise,  for  on  the  day  it  met,  the 
Provincial  Congress  or  Convention  of  the  seceded  states  met  at  Montgomery, 
Ala.,  and  by  the  i8th  of  February  had  adopted  and  inaugurated  a  govern- 
ment, to  be  known  as  "  the  Confederate  States  of  America." 

On  the  5th  of  February  the  Governor  of  Georgia  ordered  the  seizure,  in 
the  harbor  of  Savannah,  of  several  vessels  owned  in  the  city  of  New  York, 
in  reprisal  for  the  detention,  by  the  Metropolitan  police  of  the  city,  of  arms 
consigned  to  the  State  of  Georgia ;  three  days  later,  however,  the  vessels  were 
released.  On  the  2ist  this  Governor  again  ordered  the  seizure  of  New  York 
shipping  at  Savannah,  and  directed  that  the  ships  be  detained  until  the  arms, 
still  held  by  the  police,  were  delivered  to  his  agent  in  New  York  city. 
Munitions  of  war  were  being  shipped  from  the  North  to  the  Southern  States. 
Proposing  to  stop  this  traffic,  the  police  authorities  of  New  York  city  ordered 
in  the  latter  part  of  January  the  detention  of  an  invoice  of  arms  about  being 
shipped  to  Savannah.  Communication  by  telegraph  ensued,  and  a  formal 
demand  was  made  on  the  mayor  of  the  city  by  an  agent  of  Georgia  for  the 
release  of  the  arms.  A  like  demand  was  also  made,  by  telegraph,  by  the 
Governor  of  Georgia  on  the  Executive  of  this  state,  who  responded  that  the 
grave  character  and  unofficial  form  of  the  missive  forbade  action  until  better 
authenticated  information  should  be  received.  Letters  arrived  in  due  time  and 
to  the  renewed  demand  of  the  Governor  of  Georgia  Governor  Morgan  replied : 
"  *  *  *  Assuming  I  have  authority  to  do  so,  you  expect  me  to  surrender 


12  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

(or  formally  to  withhold)  the  property  alleged  to  be  in  the  possession  of  the 
superintendent  of  the  Metropolitan  police,  by  a  given  date.  Permit  me  to 
say,  that  as  Governor  of  this  state,  I  have  no  power  whatever  over  the  officer 
who  made  the  seizure,  and  had  no  more  knowledge  of  the  fact,  nor  have  I 
any  more  connection  with  the  transaction,  than  has  any  other  citizen  of  this 
state;  but  I  do  not  hesitate  to  say  that  the  arms  will  be  delivered  whenever 
application  shall  be  made  for  them.  Should  such  not  be  the  case  however, 
redress  is  to  be  sought,  not  in  an  appeal  to  the  Executive  authority  of  New 
York  to  exercise  a  merely  arbitrary  power,  but  in  due  form  of  law,  through 
the  regularly  constituted  tribunals  of  justice  of  the  state  or  of  the  United 
States,  as  the  parties  aggrieved  may  elect.  It  is  but  proper  here  to  say,  that 
the  courts  are  at  all  times  open  to  suitors,  and  a  complaint  has  not  reached  me 
of  the  inability  or  unwillingness  of  judicial  officers  to  render  exact  justice  to 
all.  If,  however,  the  fact  be  otherwise,  whatever  authority  the  Constitution 
and  the  laws  vest  in  me,  for  compelling  a  performance  of  their  duty,  will  be 
promptly  exercised.  In  conclusion  permit  me  to  say  that,  while  differing 
widely  with  your  Excellency  as  to  the  right  or  policy  of  your  acts  and  of 
the  views  expressed  in  your  several  communications,  I  have  the  honor  to 
b^  *  *  */'  'j^g  police  authorities  delivered  the  arms  in  question  to  the 
agent  of  the  State  of  Georgia  on  the  i6th  of  March. 

On  the  1 8th  of  February  the  President-elect  was  received  at  the  Capitol 
as  the  guest  of  the  state,  and  was  cordially  welcomed  by  the  Governor,  the 
Legislature  and  the  citizens.  The  chairman  of  the  committee,  on  the  part  of 
the  Legislature,  pledged  him  the  support  of  the  State  of  New  York  in  the 
discharge  of  his  constitutional  duties.  For  this  he  expressed  his  gratitude, 
and  added :  "  While  I  hold  myself,  without  mock  modesty,  the  humblest  of 
all  individuals  that  have  been  elected  to  the  presidency,  I  have  a  more  difficult 
task  to  perform  than  any  of  them." 

Events  were  daily  rendering  it  more  and  more  likely  that  the  domestic 
discord  would  terminate  in  open  hostilities.  The  probabilities  of  this,  and 
the  means  for  subduing  the  expected  hostilities  were  discussed  at  every 
fireside  throughout  the  state.  The  decadence  of  the  military  spirit  of  the 
people  at  large  had  been  gradual,  but  nearly  absolute.  Public  money  expended 
to  maintain  a  Militia  establishment  was  regarded  as  wasted.  But  notwith- 
standing the  general  apathy  of  the  people,  there  were  still  a  few  men  in  every 
portion  of  the  state,  and  especially  at  the  principal  centres,  who  did  not 
permit  the  military  spirit  wholly  to  die  out.  The  principal  lack  was  in  material 
of  war.  The  strength  of  the  organized  Militia  was  nominally  nineteen 
thousand  men ;  to  arm  this  force  the  state  possessed  but  about  eight  thousand 
muskets  and  rifles,  and  one  hundred  and  fifty  smooth-bore  field  pieces,  of 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861  13 

almost  every  calibre.  The  National  authorities  were  not  in  condition  to  supply 
the  want,  the  late  Secretary  of  War  having  sent  thousands  of  muskets  from 
the  Watervliet  arsenal  to  the  South.  This  want  had,  however,  been  brought 
to  the  notice  of  the  Legislature  by  the  Governor  in  his  annual  message,  where 
he  pointed  out  the  lack  of  serviceable  military  stores,  and  stated  that  the 
organized  Militia  was  not  provided  with  reliable  weapons;  he  asked  the 
Legislature  to  take  early  measures  to  supply  these  deficiencies,  recommending 
for  that  purpose  an  appropriation,  to  be  used  at  the  discretion  of  the  military 
department  of  the  state,  and  a  bill  had  been  introduced  providing  half  a 
million  dollars  for  the  purchase  of  arms  and  equipments.  This  bill,  however, 
did  not  become  a  law  until  just  before  the  close  of  the  session,  when  events 
had  demonstrated  its  imperative  necessity. 

At  half-past  four  o'clock  of  the  morning  of  the  I2th  day  of  April  a  shot 
was  fired  from  the  mortar  battery  near  old  Fort  Johnson,  and  a  moment  later 
fell  upon  Fort  Sumter.  This  shot,  although  not  the  first  fired  upon  the 
National  flag,  inaugurated  a  conflict  of  gigantic  proportions  and  far-reaching 
consequences,  from  which  the  United  States  emerged  forever  as  one  Country 
and  one  Nation. 

The  bombardment  of  Fort  Sumter  was  shortly  followed  by  its  surrender, 
which  became  known  at  the  capital  of  the  State  on  Sunday  morning  the  I4th. 
The  news  came  upon  the  people  as  an  event  too  sad  for  full  belief.  But  the 
suddenness  of  the  intelligence  was  followed  by  prompt  and  efficient  action  in 
every  quarter.  A  meeting  took  place  in  the  afternoon  at  the  Executive 
chamber.  There  were  present  the  Governor  and  other  state  officers,  the 
Speaker  of  the  Assembly  and  members  of  the  military  and  finance  committees 
of  the  two  houses.  A  committee,  consisting  of  the  Attorney-General,  the 
Adjutant-General,  the  Inspector-General,  Mr.  Blood  of  the  Senate  and  Mr. 
Robinson  of  the  Assembly,  was  appointed  to  draft  a  bill  to  be  submitted  to 
the  Legislature  the  following  morning.  As  drawn  by  the  committee,  the 
bill  invested  the  Governor  with  the  power  of  its  execution,  and  provided  for 
the  enrollment  of  thirty  thousand  volunteer  Militia  to  serve  for  two  years, 
appropriating  three  million  dollars  to  meet  the  expense.  The  Legislature 
connected  the  state  officers  with  the  Governor  in  the  raising  and  organizing 
of  these  troops  and  the  bill,  thus  modified,  was  approved  by  the  Governor  on 
the  1 6th.  The  commission  created  thereby  was  popularly  known  as  the  "  State 
Military  Board,  and  consisted  of  the  Governor  of  the  state,  Edwin  D. 
Morgan;  the  Lieutenant-Governor,  Robert  Campbell  of  Bath;  the  Secretary 
of  State,  David  R.  Floyd-Jones  of  South  Oyster  Bay ;  the  Comptroller,  Robert 
Denniston  of  Salisbury  Mills;  the  Attorney-General,  Charles  G.  Myers  of 


14  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

Ogdensburgh ;  the  State  Engineer  and  Surveyor,  Van  Rensselaer  Richmond 
of  Lyons;  and  the  State  Treasurer,  Philip  Dorsheimer  of  Buffalo. 

On  the  1 5th  of  April  the  President  issued  his  proclamation  calling  forth 
the  Militia  of  the  several  states  to  the  number  of  seventy-five  thousand  men, 
to  suppress  treasonable  combinations  and  to  cause  the  laws  to  be  duly  executed. 
The  quota  assigned  to  this  state  consisted  of  seventeen  regiments,  each  of 
seven  hundred  and  eighty  officers  and  enlisted  men,  making  in  the  aggregate 
a  force  of  thirteen  thousand  two  hundred  and  eighty  men. 

The  State  Military  Board  met  on  the  evening  of  the  i6th  and  the  Governor 
submitted  a  dispatch  from  the  Secretary  of  War,  to  the  effect  that  the  men 
called  for  were  to  be  mustered  into  immediate  service,  and  that  he  would  be 
gratified  to  have  one  or  more  regiments  march  to  Washington  before  the  close 
of  the  week.  The  situation  demanded  prompt  action;  the  Governor  at  once 
issued  orders  for  the  available  organized  Militia  to  march ;  the  Board  resolved 
that  seventeen  regiments  of  seven  hundred  and  eighty  men  each,  be  enrolled 
and  mustered  into  service  for  two  years,  and  made  provisions  for  the  prompt 
transportation  to  Washington  of  the  regiments  of  the  organized  Militia 
ordered  into  service  by  the  Governor,  as  well  as  of  the  volunteer  Militia 
authorized  by  it,  and  for  procuring  necessary  quarters,  hospital,  medical 
and  other  supplies.  There  was  need  of  this  action;  communication  with 
Washington  was  severed,  and  the  condition  of  affairs  there  was  such,  that  the 
state  was  left  in  most  part  to  supply  transportation  for  her  troops;  indeed 
everything  in  the  way  of  accommodations  for  volunteers,  sick  and  well,  was 
to  be  provided  by  the  state  authorities. 

The  Governor's  military  staff  was  composed  of  men  who  were  competent 
for  the  new  and  weighty  duties  now  falling  upon  them.  Time  was  not  given 
to  deliberate,  the  work  pressed  upon  their  attention  at  once.  The  details,  as 
well  as  the  general  duties  of  the  several  staff  departments  were  instantly 
and  vigorously  entered  upon.  An  army  of  forty  thousand  men,  including  the 
organized  Militia,  was  to  be  prepared  for  the  field  and  all  the  staff  officers 
were  more  than  fully  employed.  During  his  administration  Governor 
Morgan's  staff  consisted  of:  Adjutant-General  J.  Meredith  Reed,  Jr.,  of 
Albany,  who  resigned  on  account  of  ill  health  August  14,  1861,  and  was 
succeeded  by  Thomas  Hillhouse  of  Geneva;  Inspector-General  William  A. 
Jackson  of  Albany,  who  resigned  May  17,  1861,  to  become  Colonel  of  the  i8th 
Volunteers,  followed  by  Marsena  R.  Patrick,  who  resigned  February  10,  1862, 
to  become  Brigadier-General  of  Volunteers,  in  whose  place  was  appointed 
Qiester  A.  Arthur,  who  resigned  July  9,  1862,  to  become  Quartermaster- 
General  and  who  was  succeeded  by  Cuyler  Van  Vechten;  Judge-Advocate 
General  William  Henry  Anthon  of  New  York  city;  Quartermaster-General 


THE  STATE  —  IN  1861  15 


Cuyler  Van  Vechten  of  Albany,  who  July  9,  1862,  was  appointed  Inspector- 
General  and  was  replaced  by  Chester  A.  Arthur;  Surgeon  General  S.  Oakley 
Vanderpoel  of  Albany;  Paymaster-General  Thomas  B.  Van  Buren,  succeeded 
by  George  Bliss,  Jr.,  February  27,  1862,  upon  becoming  Colonel  of  the  iO2d 
Volunteers;  Engineer-in-Chief  Chester  A.  Arthur,  appointed  Inspector- 
General  February  10,  1862;  Chief  of  Ordnance,  the  constitutional  Commis- 
sary-General, Benjamin  Welch,  Jr.,  of  Buffalo;  Aides-de-Camp,  Edwin  D. 
Morgan,  Jr.,  of  New  York  city,  resigned  May  13,  1861  ;  Edmund  Schriver 
from  May  13  to  September  2,  1861  ;  Thomas  B.  Arden  from  September  2, 
1861  ;  Samuel  D.  Bradford,  Jr.,  resigned  January  31,  1862;  Francis  M.  Rotch 
from  February  12,  1862;  Elliott  F.  Shepard  and  John  H.  Linsly.  Several 
officers  of  the  Regular  Army  were  assigned  to  temporary  duty  at  Albany  about 
this  period,  to  assist  the  military  department  by  their  experience  ;  of  these  were 
Colonels  Delafield,  Schriver  and  Keyes,  whose  names  are  prominent  in  the 
annals  of  the  war. 

Depots  were  established  at  New  York  city,  Albany  and  Elmira,  and 
Brigadier-Generals  Charles  Yates,  John  F.  Rathbone  and  Robert  B.  Van 
Valkenburgh  of  the  organized  Militia,  respectively,  placed  in  command  of 
them.  Branch  depots  were  also  opened  at  Syracuse  and  Troy,  and  Brigadier- 
Generals  Robert  M.  Richardson  and  Darius  Allen,  respectively,  assigned  to 
their  charge.  Orders  were  issued  for  the  rendezvous  and  organization  of  men, 
of  whom  many  were  already  arriving  at  these  depots  —  even  before  authority 
to  receive  them  existed  —  often,  indeed,  presenting  themselves  unannounced; 
and  such  was  the  patriotic  spirit  of  the  people  that  many,  obviously  unfit 
physically  and  by  reason  of  age,  came  with  the  able-bodied  volunteers. 

Worthily  interpreting  the  spirit  of  their  constituency,  the  Legislature 
prolonged  its  session  and  redoubled  its  labors.  Loyal  men  of  all  political 
opinions  rallied  around  the  flag  of  their  country  ;  and  it  should  be  remembered 
as  one  of  the  noblest  manifestations  of  that  period  of  danger,  how  enthusiasti- 
cally the  last  hours  of  the  Senate  and  Assembly  were  devoted  to  the  duties  of 
patriotism.  Nearly  a  score  of  these  legislators,  who  with  their  votes  initiated 
the  work  of  preparing  the  way  of  their  state,  followed  up  the  public  pledge, 
then  given,  with  the  sword.  The  life  blood  of  some  of  these  earnest  men  too 
soon  became  the  tribute  of  their  devotion,  and  they  stand  conspicuous  in  the 
roll  of  the  immortal  as  the  representative  heroes  of  the  Legislature  of  the 
State. 

In  this,  the  eighty-fourth  session  of  the  Legislature,  the  people  of  the 
State  were  represented

While  officials  were  thus  engaged,  the  people  were  alive  with  zeal  in 
preparing  to  answer  the  call  of  the  government.  They  held  public  meetings, 
adopted  patriotic  addresses,  raised  money  and  enrolled  men,  in  every  part 
of  the  state.  Past  political  differences  were  forgotten.  Flags  were  floating 
from  church  steeples,  public  buildings,  school-houses  and  private  resi- 
dences. The  thrilling  tones  of  the  loyal  press  penetrated  every  household, 
and  gave  utterance  to  the  popular  enthusiasm ;  its  representatives  threw  down 
the  pen  and  grasped  the  sword;  they  proposed  to  make  the  history,  which 
they  were  afterwards  to  chronicle.  All  was  animation  and  a  state  of  peace  had 
suddenly  been  transformed  into  a  condition  of  war.  From  every  quarter 


i8  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

came  applications  for  authority  to  raise  troops.  The  people  were  sensitively 
alive  to  the  demands  of  the  hour.  Real  or  fancied  delays,  whether  inevitable 
or  not,  were  censured  without  stint,  if  not  without  reason.  Private  liberality 
was  without  bounds. 

The  emergency  and  the  danger  to  the  National  Capitol  were  great,  and 
well  it  was  that  some  of  the  genuine  military  spirit  had  been  kept  alive. 
The  militia  regiments  ordered  out  by  the  Governor  for  a  service  of  three 
months,  responded  to  the  pressing  call  with  an  alacrity  that  stands  to  their 
perpetual  credit.  This  prompt  response  no  doubt  saved  the  capitol  from 
capture  and  spoliation.  The  hearts  of  all  were  quickened,  when  the  lightning 
flashed  from  Washington  its  missive  of  doubt  and  despondency,  of  painful 
peril,  of  glad  and  heartfelt  relief!  How  startling  was  the  first  summons, 
flashed  along  the  wires  from  the  threatened  seat  of  the  government;  how 
incessant  the  fiery  messages  thereafter.  Numberless  messages  of  alarm  and 
counsel  poured  upon  the  Governor  from  Washington  and  all  parts  of  the 
state;  they  were  the  throbbings  of  the  heart  of  the  people. 

On  the  1 8th  of  April  the  Governor  issued  his  proclamation  calling  upon 
the  people  for  volunteers  for  seventeen  of  the  regiments  authorized  under  the 
act  passed  by  the  Legislature.  On  the  iQth  a  great  meeting  of  merchants 
was  held  in  New  York  city;  resolutions  to  sustain  the  government  were 
adopted,  and  at  the  announcement  that  several  regiments,  then  organizing, 
needed  assistance,  more  than  twenty  thousand  dollars  were  raised  in  ten 
minutes'  time.  On  the  same  day  the  famous  Seventh  Militia,  amidst  the 
greatest  enthusiasm,  left  for  the  city  of  Washington. 

The  next  day,  the  2Oth,  occurred  that  memorable  meeting  in  Union 
Square,  New  York  city,  of  two  hundred  thousand  of  the  people.  Leading 
citizens  without  distinction  of  party,  met  there  to  unite  their  voices  in  support 
of  the  government.  The  surging  crowds  that  filled  the  streets,  drowned  all 
noises  in  their  huzzas  for  the  Union.  The  meeting  was  an  important  one  in 
every  sense;  its  action  gave  direction  to  popular  sentiment  everywhere,  and 
the  Union  Defense  Committee  was  then  formed  from  the  foremost  citizens  of 
the  great  Metropolis.  Conventions  and  meetings  were  held  on  the  same  day 
in  Schenectady,  Hudson,  Utica,  Oswego  and  Rochester,  and  troops  raised  and 
means  provided.  The  people  of  Poughkeepsie,  Troy,  Auburn,  Syracuse  and 
Buffalo  also  met  to  counsel  on  the  best  mode  of  responding  to  the  country's 
call.  Town  and  village,  great  and  small,  were  likewise  engaged.  Albany 
and  Elmira  were  changed,  in  a  few  hours,  from  business  centres  into  military 
camps. 

On  the  2ist,  the  Sixth,  Twelfth  and  Seventy-first  regiments  of  the  Militia 
left  the  city  of  New  York  en  route  for  Washington.  On  the  22d,  a  patriotic 


IN  THE  STATE — IN  1861  19 

meeting  of  the  Bench  and  Bar  of  New  York  city  took  place,  at  which  money 
was  subscribed  by  the  thousands;  the  city  of  New  York  appropriated 
one  million  dollars  for  fitting  out  soldiers  and  supporting  the  families  of 
volunteers;  and  the  Twenty-fifth  regiment  of  Militia  left  Albany  for  the 
endangered  Capitol  of  the  country.  The  succeeding  day,  the  23d,  witnessed 
a  great  meeting  in  Brooklyn,  at  which  Robert  J.  Walker,  a  former  Cabinet 
officer,  and  resident  of  a  seceded  state,  addressed  the  people,  and  the 
departure  from  Brooklyn  of  the  Thirteenth,  and  from  New  York  city  of  the 
Eighth  and  Sixty-ninth  regiments  of  the  organized  Militia  of  the  state.  On 
the  26th,  the  Secretary  of  War  wrote  to  the  Governor:  "  I  have  to  repeat  the 
acknowledgments  of  this  department  for  your  very  prompt  and  energetic 
action  in  sending  forward  the  troops  of  your  state."  On  the  27th  the  Fifth 
regiment  of  Militia  of  New  York  city;  on  the  28th  the  Twentieth  regiment 
of  Militia  of  Kingston;  on  the  2Qth  the  Ellsworth  Fire  Zouaves,  later  the 
Eleventh  Volunteers,  a  two  years'  regiment,  of  New  York  city,  and  on  the 
3Oth  the  Twenty-eighth  regiment  of  Militia  of  Brooklyn,  left  the  state  for 
active  service. 

The  remaining  regiments  of  the  organized  Militia  were  preparing  to 
march,  when  in  the  first  days  of  May,  their  orders  were  countermanded  upon 
receipt  of  information  from  the  General  Government  that  no  more  three 
months'  men  were  desired.  Four  companies  of  the  Seventy-fourth  Militia 
volunteered  then,  and  left  Buffalo  for  Elmira  May  3d,  escorted  to  the  depot 
by  the  Home  Guards,  of  which  Ex-President  Fillmore  was  major  and  in 
command. 

The  Militia  regiments,  when  starting  for  Washington,  were  accompanied 
to  the  points  of  embarkation  by  the  people.  Their  line  of  march  was  a 
perfect  ovation;  thousands  filled  the  sidewalks;  private  and  public  buildings 
were  decorated  with  banners,  and  there  were  many  touching  scenes  of  farewell 
taking. 

The  enlistment  of  volunteers  under  the  Governor's  proclamation  of  the 
1 8th  of  April  proceeded  with  great  rapidity.  On  the  22d,  only  a  week  after 
the  proclamation  of  the  President,  eighty-two  companies  had  been  accepted, 
and  the  State  Military  Board  adopted  a  resolution  "  to  organize  the  remainder 
of  the  force  provided  for  in  the  act  of  April  i6th." 

Firearms  were  now  the  serious  want.  On  the  24th  of  April  an  agent  was 
sent  to  Europe  to  purchase  twenty-five  thousand  stands  of  the  most  approved 
pattern,  and  also  a  supply  of  fixed  ammunition.  The  agent  carried  a  letter 
of  credit  for  half  a  million  dollars,  and  a  communication  from  the  Governor 
to  Lord  Palmerston,  requesting  him  to  sanction  these  purchases  by  the  state. 
The  Governor-General  of  Canada,  meanwhile  applied  to  for  authority  to 


20  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

purchase  arms  in  his  territory,  replied  that  he  was  not  permitted  to  allow 
munitions  of  war  to  be  taken  from  that  province.  In  Europe  the  agent 
found  that  large  orders  had  been  sent  out  from  this  country  and  that  the 
Spanish  government  was  a  heavy  purchaser  of  arms  in  the  British  markets. 
He,  however,  obtained  nineteen  thousand  Enfield  muskets  at  a  cost  of  three 
hundred  and  thirty-five  thousand  dollars.  His  first  shipment  was  refused 
passage  by  the  English  steamship  company,  though  sent  to  Galway  by  the 
house  of  Baring  Brothers. 

On  the  25th  of  April  the  Governor,  in  accordance  with  the  resolution 
adopted  by  the  State  Military  Board,  issued  his  proclamation  for  volunteers 
for  twenty-one  additional  regiments,  making  the  total  number  of  regiments  to 
be  organized  for  two  years'  service  thirty-eight,  and  completing  the  force  of 
volunteer  Militia  authorized  by  law. 

Public  manifestations  increased.  Nationalities  vied  with  each  other  in 
the  work  of  raising  regiments  and  sustaining  the  government.  On  the  25th 
of  April  an  enthusiastic  meeting  of  the  British  residents  was  held  in  New 
York  city;  followed  a  few  days  later  by  a  Union  meeting  of  the  French 
residents.  The  Germans  met  frequently  in  large  assemblages,  and  other 
nationalities  were  equally  active.  Distinctive  regiments  of  Irish,  Scotch, 
Germans  and  French  were  being  raised  for  the  war.  The  Common  Council 
of  Buffalo  made  a  large  appropriation  to  equip  a  local  regiment.  Troy 
established  a  special  depot  and  raised  money  for  its  support.  Other  cities 
and  towns  were  not  behind  in  the  work.  Collections  were  made  in  churches 
and  at  other  assemblages  for  furnishing  needed  supplies  for  the  soldiers  and 
for  supporting  their  families.  Active  patriotism  prevailed  in  business  circles ; 
bankers  and  commercial  men  were  furnishing  money  by  the  tens  of  thosuands. 
Mechanics  and  manufacturers  were  vieing  with  others  in  the  work  of  for- 
warding men  and  providing  for  those  at  home.  Representatives  of  all  pro- 
fessions and  pursuits  were  found  in  the  ranks  or  hastening  to  the  rendezvous. 
The  Union  Defense  Committee,  the  Merchants'  and  the  German  committees, 
the  Chamber  of  Commerce,  churches  and  citizens  of  New  York  city  and 
other  localities,  throughout  the  state,  assisted  with  money  in  defraying  the 
expenses  of  the  organizations  springing  up  all  over  the  country. 

On  the  /th  of  May  the  Governor,  expressing  his  gratification  at  the 
alacrity  and  self-sacrificing  spirit  displayed  by  the  people,  announced  that  the 
maximum  number  allowed  by  the  act  of  April  i6th  having  been  enrolled, 
expenditure  of  time  or  means  should  not  be  uselessly  incurred  by  the  patriotic 
citizens  of  the  state  in  further  efforts  for  new  organizations. 

May  3d,  the  President  issued  a  call  for  forty-two  thousand  and  thirty-four 
volunteers  for  a  service  of  three  years,  and  the  War  Department  granted 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861  21 

authority  to  committees  and  individuals  to  recruit  regiments,  crediting  them 
to  the  state,  so  that  when,  May  25th,  the  organization  of  the  thirty-eight 
two-years'  regiments  was  completed,  the  number  of  men  required  from  this 
state  was  found  to  be  already  filled,  while  but  a  part  of  the  troops  raised  by 
the  state  authorities  had  been  accepted  by  the  General  Government.  This 
created  a  serious  embarrassment  and  a  delay  in  forwarding  troops.  The  term 
of  service  of  the  New  York  contingent  had  been  fixed  by  law  at  two  years 
and  could  therefore  not  be  changed,  otherwise  matters  could  have  been 
arranged  more  quickly.  However,  the  State  Military  Board  insisted  that  the 
troops  raised  by  authority  of  the  state  should  be  received  without  regard  to 
those  tendered  or  raised  by  committees  and  unofficial  persons,  and  finally, 
June  1 2th,  Secretary  of  War  Cameron  ordered  the  muster  into  the  United 
States  service  of  all  the  regiments  which  had  been  enrolled  into  the  state 
service,  and  not  yet  mustered  in  the  United  States  service.  A  small  number 
of  these  had  meanwhile  been  mustered  in  for  three  months,  which  caused  at 
the  expiration  of  that  time,  when  the  Governor,  at  the  request  of  the  War 
Department,  ordered  them  to  continue  in  the  United  States  service  for  the 
unexpired  term  of  their  state  service  considerable  dissatisfaction  and  evil. 
Under  the  President's  call  of  May  3d  and  authority  received  from  the  War 
Department,  there  were  organized  for  a  service  of  three  years,  principally 
under  the  auspices  of  the  Union  Defense  Committee  of  New  York  city :  The 
Garibaldi  Guard,  the  Mozart  Regiment,  the  De  Kalb  Regiment,  the  Tammany 
Jackson  Guard,  the  Second,  Ninth,  Fourteenth  and  Seventy-ninth  regiments 
of  Militia. 

May  1 4th  the  Secretary  of  War  on  the  part  of  the  President,  again 
thanked  the  Governor  and  his  staff,  for  seconding  the  call  of  the  President 
for  troops  in  such  prompt  and  efficient  manner. 

Early  in  July  the  General  Government  requested  some  mounted  troops 
and  two  companies  were  forwarded,  one  company  composed  of  volunteers 
from  the  First,  the  other  of  volunteers  from  the  Third,  regiment  of  cavalry 
of  the  Militia;  they  entered  the  United  States  service  for  three  months. 

By  July  1 2th  the  last  volunteer  organization  had  left  the  state  and  at  that 
date  there  had  been  placed  in  the  United  States  service  by  this  state :  Of  the 
organized  Militia  for  three  months'  service  8,534  men;  of  two  years'  volun- 
teers 30,131  men;  of  three  years'  volunteers  7,557  men,  making  a  total  of 
46,224  officers  and  enlisted  men.  The  depots  were  closed  and  recruiting 
suspended. 

The  tide  of  volunteering  was  still  at  flood.  Applications  for  authority  to 
raise  additional  companies  were  as  strongly  pressed  as  at  any  time  since  the 
firing  upon  Fort  Sumter,  but  the  General  Government  declined  to  accept  more 


22  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

men.  The  Governor  asked  for  the  privilege  of  accepting  a  certain  number  of 
companies  and  suggested  that  they  be  sent  to  camps  of  instruction  within  the 
state,  and  thus  a  well-drilled  force  be  provided  for  emergencies.  Long 
Island  and  the  vicinity  of  Buffalo  were  two  of  the  points  suggested  for  the 
encampment,  and  the  latter  city  formally  tendered  an  eligible  site  on  the 
shores  of  Lake  Erie  for  this  purpose.  In  regard  to  the  former  locality,  a 
competent  officer,  after  examining  several  points,  had  selected  a  suitable 
place  not  far  from  New  York  city.  The  Federal  authorities,  however,  had  not 
assented  to  this  policy,  when  the  defeat  at  Bull  Run,  July  2ist,  changed  the 
aspect  of  affairs,  gave  a  new  direction  to  the  efforts  of  the  state,  and  opened  a 
new  period  of  the  war. 

The  defeat  at  Bull  Run,  while  it  filled  the  people  with  pain  and  sorrow, 
did  not  have  a  depressing  effect  on  their  patriotic  spirit ;  on  the  contrary  the 
desire  to  uphold  the  Government,  to  preserve  and  protect  the  Union  and  the 
Nation  seemed,  if  possible,  to  grow  stronger  than  at  any  time  before.  The 
people  at  large  were  also  beginning  to  appreciate  that  the  struggle  had  but 
commenced,  and  that  the  end  was  not  as  near  as  many  had  heretofore 
believed  and  expected.  Men  and  means  were  liberally  offered,  and  when 
on  the  day  after  the  reverse,  the  President  approved  the  act  of  Congress 
authorizing  the  organization  of  an  army  of  five  hundred  thousand  men,  with 
power  to  increase  the  force  whenever  he  should  deem  it  necessary,  his  action 
and  that  of  Congress  were  warmly  applauded  and  supported. 

At  the  request  of  the  President,  Governor  Morgan  issued,  July  25th,  a 
proclamation  calling  for  twenty-five  thousand  volunteers  for  three  years' 
service,  to  be  organized  into  twenty-five  regiments  of  infantry,  and  July  3Oth, 
the  Governor,  at  the  request  of  the  War  Department,  called  for  volunteers  for 
four  additional  regiments,  two  of  cavalry  and  two  of  artillery. 

On  the  26th  of  July  three  regiments  of  colored  men  to  serve  during  the 
war,  were  tendered  to  the  Governor,  with  the  assurance  that  their  arms, 
equipments,  clothing  and  pay,  while  in  the  service,  would  be  provided  by  the 
colored  population  of  the  state.  There  being  no  authority  to  enroll  colored 
men,  the  offer  had  to  be  declined;  but  this  appreciation  of  the  struggle 
before  the  country  and  the  loyal  spirit  the  offer  indicated,  deserve  to  be 
placed  on  record. 

On  the  3  ist  of  July  the  depots  at  New  York  city,  Albany  and  Elmira 
were  reopened,  with  the  same  efficient  officers  in  command,  and  recruiting 
and  organizing  recommenced  with  vigor  and  energy.  A  quota  was  not 
assigned  to  the  state  at  the  time ;  the  troops  were  raised  under  the  act  of  Con- 
gress approved  July  22d;  however,  when  in  June,  1862,  it  became  necessary 
to  determine  what  the  quota  should  have  been,  in  order  to  make  further  calls, 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 


23 


it  was  decided  that  since  the  President's  call  of  April  I5th,  this  state  should 
have  been  required  to  furnish  one  hundred  and  nine  thousand  and  fifty-six 
three  years'  volunteers.  The  Union  Defense  Committee,  the  German  and 
other  committees  of  New  York  city,  Brooklyn,  and  the  other  cities  and 
localities  of  the  state,  which  had  rendered  such  valuable  services  in  April 
and  May,  renewed  their  former  efforts,  and  aided  in  every  possible  way  the 
officers  of  the  state.  The  ardor  of  the  people  cannot  be  described;  requests 
for  authority  to  raise  regiments  and  to  recruit  companies  flooded  the  military 
department,  and  it  became  necessary  to  establish  branch  depots  for  the 
reception  of  companies  and  the  organization  of  regiments,  to  meet  the  spirit 
of  the  people  and  to  enable  prompt  and  fruitful  co-operation  on  the  part  of 
the  various  committees  and  many  persons  of  influence.  Such  depots  were 
established  between  August  23d  and  November  2d,  in  the  order  named,  at : 
Oswego,  Saratoga,  Buffalo,  Rochester,  Ogdensburg,  Auburn,  Kingston, 
Westfield,  in  the  first  district  of  the  county  of  New  York,  Syracuse,  Brooklyn, 

Boonville,    Geneseo,    Cortlandville,    Plattsburgh,    Cherry    Valley,    Potsdam, 

» 

Malone,  Unadilla,  Hancock,  Madison  Barracks,  Lyons,  Utica,  Le  Roy  and 
Nineveh. 

Up  to  this  time  the  largest  portion  of  the  expenses  incurred  in  recruiting, 
quartering,  subsisting,  uniforming,  arming,  transporting,  and  even  paying  the 
troops  raised  in  the  state,  especially  in  the  case  of  the  Militia  and  the  two 
years'  regiments,  had  been  borne  by  the  state ;  but  August  1 5th,  the  officers  of 
the  Regular  Army,  who  had  been  detailed  to  muster  in  the  new  levy,  were  con- 
stituted disbursing  officers  of  the  General  Government  and,  Congress  having 
passed  the  necessary  appropriation,  provided  with  funds  for  the  payment  of 
expenses  of  the  nature  mentioned,  relieving  the  state  largely,  but  not  entirely, 
from  that  duty. 

In  August  the  regiments  of  the  organized  Militia,  which  had  so  promptly 
marched  to  the  front  in  April,  and  had  since  rendered  valuable  service  on  the 
field  of  battle  and  in  camp  and  garrison,  returned  to  their  home  stations  and 
were  received  by  a  grateful  people  with  enthusiastic  demonstrations  of 
approval  and  appreciation.  Many  of  these  men  at  once  re-entered  the  service 
of  their  country  as  volunteers. 

A  better  description  cannot  be  given  of  the  situation  at  this  time,  of  the 
patriotic  spirit  pervading  all,  than  is  contained  in  the  proclamation  of  the 
Governor,  issued  on  the  22d  of  August,  and  here  reproduced,  wherein,  while 
appealing  to  the  people,  he  speaks  for  them  in  unmistakable  words:  "A 
conspiracy,  not  the  work  of  a  day,  but  the  result  of  years  of  false,  wicked  and 
traitorous  machinations,  has,  for  several  months,  disturbed  the  peace  of  the 
State  of  New  York  and  of  the  Federal  Union.  Its  movements  have  been 


24  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

marked  by  violence  and  fraud.  Wherever  it  has  manifested  itself,  it  has  dis- 
regarded the  rights  of  citizens,  coerced  them  into  the  ranks  of  its  armies,  and 
exercised  an  absolute  control  over  persons  and  property,  in  utter  defiance  of 
the  Constitution  and  laws  of  the  land.  Ambitious  and  designing  men,  disap- 
pointed in  their  personal  aims,  have  been  enabled,  chiefly  by  misrepresenting 
the  feelings  of  one  portion  of  the  country  toward  the  other,  to  usurp  and 
exercise  a  power  which  has  become  not  only  tyrannical  and  oppressive  in  the 
several  states  whose  constitutional  governments  it  has  temporarily  suspended, 
but  dangerous  to  the  entire  Union.  The  pretenses  originally  held  forth  as  a 
justification  for  acts  of  lawlessness  and  treason  have  been  laid  aside.  The 
intention  of  the  leaders  of  this  wicked  Rebellion  to  destroy  the  Union, 
cemented  by  the  blood  of  our  forefathers,  is  now  fully  manifested;  and  elated 
by  an  accidental  success,  they  audaciously  threaten  the  National  Capital. 
As  Chief  Magistrate  of  the  state,  it  is  my  solemn  duty  to  warn  all  good  and 
loyal  men  of  the  dangers  to  which  our  institutions  are  exposed,  and  to  urge 
upon  them  the  necessity  of  an  earnest  and  zealous  co-operation  with  the 
authorities  of  the  state  and  General  Government,  of  a  cheerful  contribution 
of  their  means  to  support  the  public  credit,  and  of  active  enrollment  in  the 
forces  now  being  organized  for  the  defense  of  the  Union,  convinced  that  the 
tranquillity  of  the  country,  so  wantonly  disturbed,  can  only  be  restored  by  the 
prompt  and  vigorous  suppression  of  rebellion  and  treason  wherever  they 
may  appear.  The  Representatives  of  the  people  of  the  United  States,  lately 
convened  in  Congress,  at  the  call  of  a  constitutionally  elected  President,  in 
view  of  the  perils  which  surround  the  Union,  have,  by  legislative  enactment, 
provided  for  liberal  supplies  of  men  and  means  for  the  enforcement  of  the 
laws,  and  have  thus  invited  a  hearty  and  zealous  response  on  the  part  of 
the  several  states.  New  York  has  never  wavered  in  her  devotion  to  the 
Union.  She  prizes  it  on  account  of  the  many  blessings  which  all  parts  of  the 
country  alike  have  received  from  it,  on  account  of  the  memory  of  her  patriot 
sons  by  whose  blood  it  was  purchased,  and  for  the  inestimable  benefit  it 
confers  upon  the  present,  and  secures  to  future  generations.  Her  noble 
response  to  the  call  of  the  President,  in  April  last,  was  such  as  preserved  to 
her  the  proud  title  she  has  long  borne  in  the  family  of  states.  Another  stage 
in  the  great  Rebellion  has  been  reached;  and  the  Government,  appreciating 
the  dangers  now  menacing  it,  appeals  for  aid.  The  whole  country,  the 
civilized  world,  now  looks  to  the  State  of  New  York.  Let  the  response 
be  worthy  of  her  history.  Let  her  answer  go  back  in  full  ranks  of  earnest 
men,  who  justly  valuing  the  magnitude  of  the  interests  involved,  temporarily 
relinquish  their  pursuits  and  prepare  to  meet  the  crisis." 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861  25 

August  28th,  the  War  Department  authorized  recruiting  for  organiza- 
tions in  the  field,  and  ordered  details  from  such  as  required  recruits,  to  be 
sent  to  this  state  for  that  purpose. 

Since  May  the  War  Department  had  been  granting  authority  to 
individuals  to  recruit  and  organize  regiments  and  batteries,  independent  of 
the  state  authorities.  Some  of  these  were  worthy  men,  while  others  were 
not  calculated  to  meet  with  success.  Their  recruiting  parties  were  over  all 
the  state  and  created  innumerable  complications  and  annoyances  for  the 
authorities.  September  5th,  upon  the  representations  of  the  Governor,  the 
Secretary  of  War  ordered  all  residents  of  the  state,  who  had  received  from 
his  department  authority  to  recruit  and  organize,  to  report  to  the  Executive 
of  the  State  for  orders,  and  to  complete  their  respective  organizations  with  his 
approval ;  empowering  him  to  revoke  any  authority  granted,  or  to  consolidate 
organizations,  as  he  deemed  best  for  the  interests  of  the  country.  This  action 
was  timely,  and  put  an  end  to  the  many  vexatious  delays  and  interferences 
met  with  by  the  state  officers. 

To  expedite  and  simplify  the  organizing,  equipping,  subsisting  and 
forwarding  of  troops,  Governor  Morgan  consented  to  accept  the  position  of 
Major-General  of  United  States  Volunteers,  and  October  26th  the  President 
created  the  Military  Department  of  New  York,  comprising  the  state,  and 
placed  the  Governor,  as  Major-General,  in  command  of  it.  Major-General 
Morgan  assumed  command  November  ist. 

October  28th,  the  General  Government  requested  that  regiments  of 
cavalry  be  no  longer  organized,  and  November  2/th  it  extended  the  request 
also  to  infantry.  December  3d  the  War  Department,  in  General  Orders, 
directed  that  more  new  regiments  should  not  be  recruited;  that  incomplete 
organizations  should  be  consolidated,  and  all  organizations  still  in  the  states 
forwarded  as  quickly  as  possible.  This  of  course  discontinued  recruiting. 
Steps  were  at  once  taken  to  consolidate  incomplete  organizations  which,  it 
was  thought,  would  not  be  able  to  fill  their  ranks  within  a  short  time.  Other 
regiments  nearly  completed,  and  whose  ranks,  it  was  known,  could  be  filled 
in  a  few  weeks,  received  special  authority  to  continue  recruiting. 

The  recruiting  parties  for  organizations  in  the  field  had  not  been  idle ;  it 
is  estimated,  no  exact  account  having  been  recorded,  that  they  recruited  and 
sent  to  their  respective  organizations  before  the  close  of  the  year  about  eleven 
thousand  men. 

At  the  close  of  this  year  there  had  been  sent  to  the  front  since  August,  or 
rather  since  September,  for  August  was  more  a  month  of  preparation  than 
of  action,  forty-two  regiments  of  infantry,  ten  regiments  of  cavalry,  one 


26  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1861 

battalion  of  mounted  rifles,  two  regiments  of  artillery,  two  battalions  of 
artillery,  one  rocket  battalion,  nine  independent  batteries,  and  four  companies 
of  Berdan  sharpshooters,  and  there  were  still  left  in  the  state  regiments  ready 
to  start,  and  others  not  completed,  numbering  fourteen  thousand  two  hundred 
and  eighty-three  men ;  making  the  total  number  recruited  for  new  and  old 
organizations,  seventy-five  thousand  three  hundred  and  thirty-nine  men.

^^•T  HE  Legislature  of  the  state  met  in  its  eighty-fifth  session  a  few  days 
ill  after  the  commencement  of  the  year.  Like  its  predecessor,  it  was 
^^  composed  of  men  worthy  to  represent  a  loyal  and  patriotic  people. 
The  Governor,  in  his  message,  ably  portrayed  the  situation  and  de- 
scribed the  work  of  the  past  year.  The  session  was  largely  occupied  in  author- 
izing counties,  cities,  towns  and  villages  to  raise  means  for  the  equipment 
of  volunteers  and  for  the  relief  of  their  families.  Ordinances  and  acts  by 
communities,  already  passed  and  executed,  appropriating  money  in  aid 
of  the  defense  of  the  National  Union,  were  legalized.  The  Comptroller 
of  the  state  was  empowered  to  provide  means  to  the  extent  of  three 
hundred  and  fifty  thousand  dollars,  for  the  pay  of  volunteers  still  in  the 
state,  due  on  the  ist  of  January,  but  not  yet  paid  by  the  United  States. 
There  was  not,  on  the  part  of  the  authorities  and  the  people,  any  hesitation 
in  providing  for  the  soldiers  the  state  had  called  forth,  and  for  the  families 
they  had  left  behind.  Measures  were  also  taken  for  the  proper  payment  and 
distribution,  by  the  state,  of  such  sums  of  their  pay  as  may  have  been  or  would 
hereafter  be  assigned  by  the  volunteers  for  the  benefit  of  their  families  or 
others.  Provision  was  made  for  the  prompt  payment  of  the  direct  tax  levied 
by  act  of  Congress  and  apportioned  to  the  state;  of  expenses  incurred  in  the 
organization,  equipment  and  subsistence  of  troops  ;  and  for  reimbursement  of 
Militia  regiments  for  clothing  and  equipments  lost  and  destroyed  while  in  the 
United  States  service.  Toward  the  close  of  the  session  an  act  was  passed  for 
the  better  enrollment  of  the  Militia,  the  organization  and  discipline  of  the 
National  Guard,  the  designation  given  to  the  organized  Militia,  and  for  public 
defense.  February  i/th,  the  Legislature  also  passed  a  concurrent  resolution 
giving  thanks  to  the  officers  and  soldiers  for  the  recent  victories  of  the 
National  arms  at  Forts  Henry  and  Donelson,  at  Roanoke  Island,  Savannah 
and  other  points.  Chapter  420  passed  April  22d,  incorporated  the  Union 
Home  and  School  for  the  education  and  maintenance  of  the  children  of 
volunteers,  under  the  management  of  noble  women  of  the  state.  In  short  every 
thing  that  could  be  done  for  the  comfort  of  those  who  had  entered  their 
country's  service,  for  those  they  left  behind,  and  for  those  who  were  yet  to

The  General  Government  had  issued  orders,  to  take  effect  January  ist, 
placing  the  recruiting  service  in  the  states,  for  the  forces  in  the  field,  under  the 
charge  of  General  Superintendents,  and  directing  that  general  depots  be 
provided  for  the  collection  and  instruction  of  recruits.  Major  John  T. 
Sprague,  of  the  Regular  Army,  was  detailed  by  the  War  Department  as 
General  Superintendent  for  this  state,  and  selected  Elmira  and  Albany  as 
points  for  the  establishment  of  his  general  depots.  The  state  authorities 
turned  over  the  barracks,  hospitals  and  other  facilities  at  these  points  to  the 


30  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862 

United  States,  Colonel  E.  F.  Shepard,  aide-de-camp,  who  had  relieved  General 
Van  Valkenburgh  on  the  ist  of  December  last,  being  directed,  January  i8th, 
to  turn  over  the  depot  at  Elmira  to  Major  Sprague,  and  General  Rathbone, 
in  command  of  the  depot  at  Albany,  receiving  similar  directions  March  2ist. 
Under  this  order  of  the  General  Government  the  state  authorities  were 
relieved  from  the  work  of  recruiting,  except  for  new  regiments  and  companies, 
but  their  assistance  and  co-operation  were  heartily  given  to  the  General 
Superintendent.  These  orders  remained  in  force  until  April  3d  only,  when 
the  recruiting  service  for  old  organizations  was  also  discontinued.  An  error, 
whatever  may  have  caused  the  suspension;  men  were  needed  to  fill  the  regi- 
ments already  in  the  field,  and  at  the  time  recruiting  for  new  organizations  had 
ceased.  Not  until  June  6th  was  recruiting  resumed,  but  the  state  authorities 
issued  orders,  May  23d,  for  the  recruiting  and  organization  of  companies 
for  regiments  in  the  field  in  which  vacancies  for  such  existed  or  could  be 
made.  January  25th  General  Yates  was  relieved  from  the  charge  of  the 
depot  at  New  York  city  to  take  effect  February  ist,  and  Colonel  George  Bliss, 
Jr.,  detailed  to  perform  the  duties  connected  with  the  organization  of 
volunteer  regiments  and  companies  in  and  about  the  city  of  New  York. 

The  defenses  of  New  York  Harbor  had  been  a  source  of  concern  for 
some  time,  and  on  the  I2th  of  March  the  Governor  ordered  General  Chester 
A.  Arthur,  the  Inspector-General  of  the  state,  to  visit  the  forts  in  and  around 
New  York  city,  to  report  their  condition  and  what  would  be  necessary  to 
place  them  in  a  complete  state  of  defense.  Upon  that  officer's  report  the 
Governor  as  commanding  general  of  the  department,  furnished  suitable  garri- 
sons and  such  armament  as  could  be  obtained  from  the  General  Government. 

Early  in  April  the  Secretary  of  War  requested  Major-General  Morgan 
to  provide  accommodation  in  New  York  city  for  the  sick  and  wounded  of  the 
army  on  the  Peninsula  of  Virginia,  who  might  be  sent  to  the  rear.  The 
Legislature  had  already  appropriated  thirty  thousand  dollars  for  this  purpose, 
and  plans  to  expend  this  sum  in  such  manner  as  would  best  promote  the 
object  in  view,  had  been  decided  upon.  On  the  i8th,  the  Governor  ordered 
Colonel  George  Bliss,  Jr.,  to  put,  under  the  supervision  of  the  Surgeon- 
General,  into  proper  condition  for  hospital  purposes  and  for  the  good  care  of 
the  sick  and  wounded  of  the  troops  from  this  state,  such  of  the  barracks  for 
volunteers  in  or  near  the  city  of  New  York,  as  would  be  best  calculated  for 
that  purpose;  extensive  accommodations  were  also  prepared  at  Albany.  At 
the  request  of  the  General  Government  the  state  turned  over  to  it  all  these 
hospitals,  except  the  Park  Barracks  Hospital  at  New  York  city,  in  which  over 
fourteen  thousand  men  of  this  and  other  states,  received  proper  care  and 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862  31 

treatment,  on  the  part  of  this  state,  during  the  months  of  April,  May,  June, 
July  and  August,  when  it  was  discontinued. 

On  .the  i8th  of  April  General  S.  Oakley  Vanderpoel,  Surgeon-General  of 
the  state,  was  directed  to  proceed  to  Fort  Monroe  and  to  General  McClellan's 
army  to  make  and  superintend  on  the  part  of  the  state,  such  arrangements 
for  the  care  and  treatment  of  sick  and  wounded  volunteers,  and  for  their 
transportation  home,  as  in  consultation  with  the  medical  officers  of  the  army, 
he  should  find  best  to  promote  these  objects.  On  the  24th  Colonel  Francis  M. 
Rotch,  aide-de-camp  to  the  Governor,  was  dispatched  to  assist  the  Surgeon- 
General.  May  8th,  General  Arthur  was  sent  to  Yorktown  for  the  same  pur- 
pose. Every  effort  was  made  by  these  officers,  as  far  as  in  their  power,  to 
provide  prompt  transportation  to  the  state  of,  and  the  needful  comforts  for, 
the  sick.  June  I2th  these  efforts  were  renewed  and  General  Benj.  Welch,  Jr., 
Chief  of  Ordnance,  and  Colonel  Rotch,  again,  sent  to  Fort  Monroe  and  the 
Army  of  the  Potomac  to  insure  success.  Colonel  Rotch  had  also  a  mission  to 
the  army  relating  to  the  regiments  from  this  state,  their  condition  and  the 
appointment  and  promotion  of  officers. 

The  military  department  was  employed  from  the  beginning  of  the  year  to 
the  end  of  April  in  completing  and  forwarding  the  organizations  left  in  the 
state  on  the  last  day  of  the  past  year.  By  enlistments  these  had  been 
increased  in  number,  so  that  when  they  were  turned  over  to  the  General 
Government,  their  total  strength  was  nineteen  thousand  and  three  men,  formed 
in  two  regiments  and  four  independent  batteries  of  artillery  and  nineteen 
regiments  of  infantry. 

May  2ist,  the  War  Department  indicated  that  an  additional  force  of 
infantry  volunteers  for  three  years,  would  be  accepted,  and  on  the  23d,  the 
Governor  issued  orders  to  raise  as  many  companies  as  practicable,  designating 
the  depots  New  York  city,  Elmira  and  Albany  as  places  of  rendezvous  and 
assigning  as  commandants  of  these  depots  Colonels  George  Bliss,  Jr.,  and  E. 
F.  Shepard,  and  General  Cuyler  Van  Vechten,  of  his  staff,  respectively. 
Colonel  Shepard  was  relieved  by  Colonel  R.  B.  Van  Valkenburgh  July  2ist, 
1862,  and  he  by  Major  Samuel  M.  Alley  August  I4th,  1862.  On  the  comple- 
tion of  sufficient  companies,  they  were  to  be  formed,  at  the  depots,  into 
regiments  under  field  officers  appointed  by  the  Governor. 

The  movements  of  the  enemy  in  the  Shenendoah  Valley  were  now 
developing  themselves  to  the  disadvantage  of  the  Federal  arms,  and  on  the 
24th  of  May  the  Secretary  of  War  requested  the  Governor  to  forward  at  once 
regiments  of  the  organized  Militia  —  the  National  Guard.  The  Governor 
promptly  responded  to  the  request  by  ordering  the  guard  to  march  without 
delay.  Between  the  26th  of  May  and  the  4th  of  June  twelve  regiments,  the 


32  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862 

Seventh,  Eleventh,  Twenty-second,  Seventy-first,  Eighth,  Thirty-seventh, 
Thirteenth,  Forty-seventh,  Sixty-ninth,  Nineteenth,  Twenty-fifth  and  Twelfth, 
completely  armed  and  equipped,  numbering  in  the  aggregate  eight  thousand 
five  hundred  and  eighty-eight  men,  left  the  state  and  entered  the  service  of 
the  United  States  for  three  months;  the  Seventh  called  out  for  thirty  days, 
volunteered  for  the  longer  term.  More  regiments  were  preparing  to  follow, 
but  as  the  Secretary  of  War,  the  impending  danger  having  been  averted, 
requested  that  more  three  months'  men  be  not  sent,  their  marching  orders 
were  revoked.  The  promptness  with  which  the  National  Guard  responded  to 
the  call  of  the  Governor  is  worthy  of  notice.  Composed  mainly  of  citizens 
engaged  in  active  business  pursuits,  it  involved  no  light  sacrifice.  Most  of  the 
regiments  had  volunteered  under  a  similar  exigency  and  seen  service  in  1861, 
and  the  value  of  their  services  had  been  fully  appreciated  and  acknowledged 
by  the  General  Government.  On  this  occasion  their  presence  at  a  critical 
period,  was  no  less  opportune,  and  the  Secretary  of  War  expressed  his 
approval  of  the  alacrity  with  which  they  moved  to  the  front,  and  his  sense  of 
the  importance  of  the  services  rendered  to  the  country. 

June  3d,  under  the  act  of  the  Legislature  passed  April  23d,  the  Governor 
ordered  an  enrollment  to  be  made,  forthwith,  of  all  persons  within  the  state 
liable  to  military  duty,  and  intrusted  the  work  to  the  commanding  officers  of 
regiments  and  companies  of  the  National  Guard.  The  enrollment  was  made, 
but  imperfectly. 

June  1 8th,  the  Trustees  of  Greenwood  Cemetery,  Brooklyn,  having 
generously  tendered  a  portion  of  their  grounds  for  the  interment  of  soldiers, 
in  the  volunteer  service  from  this  state,  who  may  fall  in  battle  or  die  of 
disease,  regulations  governing  such  interments,  were  published  by  the  Adju- 
tant-General. 

June  28th,  at  the  suggestion  of  the  Chief  Magistrate  of  this  state,  the 
Governors  of  the  loyal  states  united  in,  and  forwarded,  the  following  to  the 
President :  "  The  undersigned,  Governors  of  States  of  the  Union,  impressed 
with  the  belief  that  the  citizens  of  the  states  which  they  respectively  represent, 
are  of  one  accord  in  the  hearty  desire  that  the  recent  successes  of  the  Federal 
armies  may  be  followed  up  by  measures  which  must  ensure  the  speedy  restora- 
tion of  the  Union,  and  believing  in  view  of  the  important  military  movements 
now  in  progress,  and  the  reduced  condition  of  our  effective  forces  in  the  field, 
resulting  from  the  usual  and  unavoidable  casualties  of  the  service,  that  the 
time  has  arrived  for  prompt  and  vigorous  measures  to  be  adopted  by  the 
people,  in  support  of  the  great  interests  committed  to  your  charge,  we  respect- 
fully request,  if  it  meets  with  your  entire  approval,  that  you  at  once  call  upon 
the  several  states  for  such  numbers  of  men  as  may  be  required  to  fill  up  all  mili- 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862  33 

tary  organizations  now  in  the  field,  and  add  to  the  arms  heretofore  organized 
such  additional  numbers  of  men  as  may,  in  your  judgment,  be  necessary  to 
garrison  and  hold  all  of  the  numerous  cities  and  military  positions  that  have 
been  captured  by  our  armies,  and  to  speedily  crush  the  rebellion  that  still  exists 
in  several  of  the  Southern  States,  thus  practically  restoring  to  the  civilized 
world  our  great  and  good  Government.  All  believe  that  the  decisive  moment 
is  near  at  hand,  and  to  that  end  the  people  of  the  United  States  are  desirous 
to  aid  promptly  in  furnishing  all  reinforcements  that  you  may  deem  needful 
to  sustain  our  Government."  To  this  the  President  replied,  July  ist: 
"  Gentlemen  —  fully  concurring  in  the  wisdom  of  the  views  expressed  to 
me  in  so  patriotic  a  manner,  by  you,  in  the  communication  of  the  28th  day 
of  June,  I  have  decided  to  call  into  the  service  an  additional  force  of  three 
hundred  thousand  men.  I  suggest  and  recommend  that  the  troops  should  be 

chiefly  of  infantry.    The  quota  of  your  State  would  be .    I  trust  that  they 

may  be  enrolled  without  delay,  so  as  to  bring  this  unnecessary  and  injurious 
civil  war  to  a  speedy  and  satisfactory  conclusion.  An  order  fixing  the  quota 
of  the  respective  states  will  be  Issued  by  the  War  Department  to-morrow." 

The  Governor,  on  the  next  day,  the  2d  of  July,  called  upon  the  people  of 
this  state,  in  the  following  proclamation,  to  respond  to  the  President's  reply : 
"  The  President  of  the  United  States  has  duly  called  upon  the  country  for 
an  additional  force  of  three  hundred  thousand  volunteers  to  serve  for  three 
years,  or  the  war.  The  wisdom  of  this  is  obvious  to  all.  Our  army  in  the 
field  has  been  reduced  by  the  ordinary  casualties  of  the  service  and  must  be 
recruited,  and  the  positions  captured  by  our  arms  must  be  held  by  military 
authority.  The  people  appreciate  these  facts.  They  fully  estimate  the  mag- 
nitude of  the  great  struggle,  and  the  sacred  obligations  imposed  upon  them, 
and  the  necessity  of  exerting  a  power  that  will  speedily  quell  the  rebellion, 
restore  the  rightful  authority  of  the  Government  and  give  peace  to  the  country. 
This  appeal  is  to  the  State  of  New  York ;  it  is  to  each  citizen.  Let  it  come  to 
every  fireside.  Let  the  glorious  example  of  the  Revolutionary  period  be  our 
emulation.  Let  each  feel  that  the  Commonwealth  now  counts  upon  his  indi- 
vidual strength  and  influence  to  meet  the  demands  of  the  Government.  The 
period  has  come  when  all  must  aid.  New  York  has  not  thus  far  stood  back. 
Ready  and  more  than  willing,  she  has  met  every  summons  to  duty.  Let  not 
her  history  be  falsified,  nor  her  position  be  lowered.  We  cannot  doubt  that 
the  insurrection  is  in  its  death  throes;  that  a  mighty  blow  will  end  its  mon- 
strous existence.  A  languishing  war  entails  vast  losses  of  life,  of  property,  the 
ruin  of  business  pursuits,  and  invites  the  interference  of  foreign  powers. 
Present  happiness  and  future  greatness  will  be  secured  by  responding  to  the 
present  call.  Let  the  answer  go  back  to  the  President  and  to  our  brave 


34  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862 

soldiers  in  the  field,  that  in  New  York  the  patriotic  list  of  the  country's 
defenders  is  augmented.  It  will  strengthen  the  hands  of  the  one,  and  give 
hope  and  encouragement  to  the  other.  An  order  fixing  the  quota  of  this  state, 
with  others,  will  be  immediately  issued  from  the  War  Department.  The 
details  of  organization  will  be  in  accordance  with  the  orders  from  the 
Adjutant-General  of  New  York.  The  state  will  be  districted,  local  committees 
will  be  appointed,  and  regimental  camps  established." 

The  quota  of  this  state  was  fixed  at  fifty-nine  thousand  seven  hundred 
and  five  men,  and  July  7th  orders  were  issued  constituting  the  senatorial 
districts,  except  the  first  seven,  regimental  districts,  and  directing  the  forma- 
tion of  a  regimental  camp  in  each.  Colonels  were  selected  and  appointed,  to 
be  commissioned  when  the  regiments  were  recruited.  Over  three  thousand 
authorizations  to  recruit  companies  were  issued.  The  state  became  a  vast 
military  camp.  Prominent  citizens  in  each  district  were  invited  to  form 
military  committees,  to  assist  the  state  officers  in  recruiting  in  their  respective 
districts.  The  response  of  these  gentlemen  was  what  could  be  anticipated 
from  men  who,  whatever  may  have  been  the  difference  in  their  political  views, 
were  earnestly  desirous  of  supporting  the  Government,  and  ready  to  devote 
to  that  object  their  means  and  influence;  and  the  rapidity  with  which  the 
quota  of  the  state  was  organized  and  placed  in  service,  is  due  in  a  great 
measure  to  their  unremitting,  gratuitous  and  well-directed  efforts. 

As  a  further  means  of  encouraging  prompt  enlistments,  the  Governor 
issued  on  the  I7th  of  July  the  following  proclamation  offering  a  bounty  on 
the  part  of  the  state :  "  Formal  meetings  of  the  people  in  different  portions  of 
the  state,  and  individuals  possessing  the  public  confidence,  have  recommended 
me  to  convene  the  Legislature,  to  the  end  that  a  uniform  bounty  may  be  pro- 
vided, to  pay  volunteers  raised  under  the  recent  requisition  of  the  President, 
in  such  manner  that  the  burden  shall  not  fall  unequally  upon  localities.  A 
call  of  the  Legislature  and  the  deliberation  incident  to  the  action  of  that  body, 
necessarily  involve  delay,  at  a  period  when  immediate  action  is  of  vital  con- 
sequence to  the  military  service.  The  popular  will  seems  emphatically  to 
demand  that  an  additional  premium  be  at  once  offered  to  promote  enlistments. 
The  exigency  clearly  requires  the  promptest  action.  Now,  therefore,  con- 
fidently believing  that  the  people,  through  their  representatives,  will  ratify  and 
confirm  this  act,  and  after  consultation  with  those  officers,  charged  especially 
by  law  with  superintending  the  fiscal  concerns  of  the  state,  I  do  hereby  offer 
and  declare,  that  in  addition  to  the  bounty  offered  by  the  General  Government, 
a  bounty  of  fifty  dollars  will  at  once  be  paid  to  each  private  soldier  who 
shall  hereafter  volunteer  into  the  service  of  the  United  States.  Regulations 
to  that  end  will  be  immediately  prepared  and  issued.  This  provision  applies 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862  35 

as  well  to  recruits  for  regiments  in  the  field,  as  to  volunteers  for  the  regi- 
ments now  being  raised.  Individual  and  organized  efforts  are  in  no  degree  to 
be  intermitted  in  consequence  of  this  offer.  On  the  contrary,  it  is  hoped  and 
expected  that  both  will  be  stimulated  thereby.  The  thinned  ranks  of  our 
brave  soldiers  in  the  field  appeal  to  us.  Duty  to  ourselves,  patriotism,  every 
thing  we  hold  most  dear,  urge  us  to  action.  Shall  we  prove  unequal  to  the 
crisis?  Let  the  next  thirty  days  answer  the  momentous  question."  This  was 
an  important  measure  and  its  effects  were  immediate.  The  Commercial  Bank 
of  Albany  advanced  the  money  to  the  state.  On  the  3Oth  day  of  August  this 
bounty  was  ordered  to  be  paid  after  the  6th  of  September,  only  to  men  enlist- 
ing in  organizations  which  were  in  the  field  before  the  2d  day  of  July  last,  and 
on  the  24th  day  of  September  it  was  announced  that  bounty  would  not  be  paid 
by  the  state  for  enlistments  made  after  the  3Oth  day  of  that  month. 

On  the  2d  day  of  October  it  was  officially  proclaimed  that  the  quota  of  the 
state  was  not  only  filled,  but  that  there  was  also  a  surplus  of  twenty-nine  thou- 
sand men  to  the  credit  of  the  state ;  recruiting  for  three  years'  men  on  the  part 
of  the  state,  was  suspended,  and  the  depots  opened  for  nine  months'  men. 

The  arming,  clothing  and  equipping  of  this  large  force  was  a  labor  second 
only  to  that  of  recruiting  and  organizing  it.  The  United  States  officers 
would  turn  over  to  the  state  authorities  from  time  to  time  the  supplies  neces- 
sary to  prepare  the  troops  for  service  and  the  issues  to  the  latter  were  made 
through  the  Quartermaster-General,  and  the  Commissary-General  of  Ordnance 
of  the  state,  to  whom  great  credit  is  due  for  the  efficiency  of  their  respective 
departments. 

The  regiments  of  the  National  Guard,  which  went  into  service  in  May 
last,  having  returned  to  the  state,  the  Governor  issued  September  6th,  the 
following  orders  recognizing  their  services :  "  The  Commander-in-Chief  avails 
himself  of  the  occasion  of  the  return  of  the  Seventh,  Eighth,  Eleventh, 
Twelfth,  Thirteenth,  Nineteenth,  Twenty-second,  Twenty-fifth,  Thirty- 
seventh,  Forty-seventh,  Sixty-ninth  and  Seventy-first  regiments  of  the  National 
Guard  to  the  State  of  New  York,  to  thank  them  for  the  services  they  have 
rendered  to  the  country,  and  for  the  honor  they  have  reflected  on  the  state. 
Summoned  for  the  second  time  within  thirteen  months,  by  a  sudden  and 
urgent  call,  to  the  aid  of  the  General  Government,  they  consented  cheerfully 
to  the  sacrifice  of  private  interests,  and  abandoned,  at  almost  a  moment's 
notice,  all  private  occupations  to  hasten  to  the  defense  of  the  National  Capitol, 
then  in  danger.  Habituated  to  the  comforts  and  enjoyments  of  wealthy  and 
peaceful  communities,  they  have,  during  their  prolonged  absence  from  their 
homes,  submitted  without  a  murmur  to  the  hardships,  the  privations  and  the 
labors  incidental  to  the  life  of  a  soldier,  and  have  discharged  with  fidelity  and 


36  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862 

alacrity,  every  duty  they  were  asked  to  perform,  and  have  stood  ready  to 
encounter  every  danger  they  might  be  called  upon  to  meet.  Their  conduct  has 
entitled  them  to  the  thanks  of  the  Government  they  were  summoned  to 
defend,  and  has  won  for  them  the  gratitude  and  confidence  of  the  people. 
It  gives  assurance  that,  notwithstanding  the  vast  army  of  volunteers  that 
the  State  of  New  York  has  sent  to  the  defense  of  the  Union,  she  has,  in  her 
National  Guard,  always  at  her  command  a  military  force  ready,  now  as  here- 
tofore, to  respond  to  any  call  that  may  be  made  on  it  by  the  General  Govern- 
ment, and  able  at  the  same  time  to  preserve  the  peace,  maintain  the  rights 
and  defend  the  liberties  of  her  own  people,  in  whatever  form  or  from  what- 
ever quarter  they  may  be  assailed.  The  Commander-in-Chief  will  always 
esteem  it  among  the  most  important  of  his  duties  to  aid,  by  every  means  in 
his  power,  in  promoting  the  interests  and  contributing  to  the  efficiency  of 
the  citizen  soldiery  of  the  State." 

September  24th,  the  Governors  of  the  loyal  states,  with  them  the  Chief 
Magistrate  of  this  state,  met  at  Altoona,  Pa.,  and  pledged  the  General  Gov- 
ernment their  cordial  support  in  the  prosecution  of  the  war;  they  recom- 
mended the  creation  of  a  reserve  army  of  one  hundred  thousand  men;  the 
emancipation  of  the  colored  people,  and  paid  deserved  tribute  to  the  army  in 
the  field. 

August  4th,  the  President,  to  increase  the  strength  of  the  regiments  in  the 
field,  issued  his  proclamation  calling  out  three  hundred  thousand  of  the  Militia 
of  the  loyal  states  for  a  service  of  nine  months;  Congress  having  previously 
passed  an  act  lengthening  the  term  of  service  for  which  the  Militia  could  be 
called  out,  to  that  period,  at  the  discretion  of  the  President.  On  the  7th,  the 
War  Department  issued  orders  directing  that  the  quotas  of  this  force  should 
be  furnished  forthwith,  and  prescribing  the  manner  in  which  the  draft  should 
be  conducted  in  states,  where  laws  providing  for  a  draft  did  not  exist,  or 
where  such  laws  were  in  any  manner  defective.  The  quota  of  this  state  was 
fifty-nine  thousand  seven  hundred  and  five  men.  By  the  law  of  the  state  the 
strength  of  the  organized  Militia  was  limited  to  twenty  thousand  men,  and 
of  these  over  eight  thousand  were  already  in  the  field.  It  became  necessary, 
therefore,  to  have  recourse  to  a  draft.  The  method  provided  by  state  law, 
for  a  draft  of  the  reserve  Militia,  on  careful  examination  was  found  to  be 
inadequate,  and  on  the  I3th  it  was  decided  to  adopt  the  plan  prescribed  by  the 
War  Department,  and  the  work  of  enrollment  commenced.  On  the  I4th  of 
October,  the  enrollment  being  nearly  completed  and  the  books  filed,  commis- 
sioners and  surgeons  were  appointed  for  the  different  counties,  to  hear  and 
determine  claims  for  exemption.  It  now  became  necessary  to  determine  the 
number  of  volunteers  already  furnished  by  counties  and  towns,  and  this  duty 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1862  37 

was  assigned  to  the  existing  committees,  organized  in  each  district,  as  already 
stated,  to  promote  recruiting,  and,  in  order  not  to  defeat  the  object  of  the 
draft,  it  was  decided  not  to  allow  credit  for  volunteers  furnished  previous  to 
July  2d,  last.  The  loth  of  November  was  finally  selected  for  making  the 
draft;  but  in  consequence  of  the  failure  of  a  number  of  counties  to  furnish 
returns  of  the  volunteers  to  be  credited,  the  deficiency  for  which  the  draft 
was  to  be  made  could  not  be  ascertained ;  in  the  case  of  other  counties  where 
the  deficiency  was  not  large,  the  committees  were  desirous  of  a  further  exten- 
sion of  time  to  enable  them  to  fill  their  quotas  and  avoid  a  draft  altogether. 
Under  these  circumstances  the  draft  was  suspended,  and,  December  3d,  the 
commissioners  directed  to  await  further  orders. 

This  delay  in  answering  the  requisition  for  nine  months'  Militia  was  not 
prejudicial  to  the  interests  of  the  country.  It  resulted  in  increasing  the  force 
of  three  years'  volunteers,  men  of  more  value  than  nine  months'  men,  much 
beyond  what  it  would  have  been  had  the  draft  taken  place  in  September 
as  originally  directed.  At  that  time  the  quota  of  three  years'  men,  under  the 
call  of  July  2d,  was  not  completed,  and  to  have  then  resorted  to  a  compulsory 
levy  would  at  once  have  stopped  enlistments  for  the  longer  period.  In  delay- 
ing the  draft  and  promoting  enlistments  for  three  years,  the  state  not  only 
succeeded  in  completing  the  quota  of  July  2d,  but  also  in  satisfying  the  demand 
of  August  4th,  the  surplus  of  three  years'  men  each  counting  for  four  nine 
months'  men  in  the  settlement  with  the  United  States,  and  leaving  still  a 
surplus  of  men  to  the  credit  of  the  state.  The  Tenth  regiment  of  the  National 
Guard,  Albany,  volunteered  for  a  service  of  nine  months,  and  went  into  the 
United  States'  service  as  the  One  Hundred  and  Seventy-seventh  regiment 
of  Volunteers. 

With  this  year  closed  the  administration  of  Governor  Morgan,  the  first 
of  the  war  Governors  of  the  State,  and  during  his  term  the  State  furnished 
for  the  prosecution  of  the  war : 

In  1861.  Militia,  for  three  months,  2  troops  of  cavalry  and  u  regiments  of

To  obtain,  however,  the  full  number  of  men  in  the  United  States'  service  from 

this  State  so  far,  it  will  be  necessary  to  add : 

Men  in  the  Regular  Army  in  service  May  i,  1861,  and  men  who  entered  the 
same  service  since  that  day  to  the  end  of  1862,  enlisted  in  this  State,  less 
1,000  men  transferred  from  the  volunteers  to  the  Regular  Army 8,731 

Men  in  the  United  States  Navy  and  Marine,  in  service  April  15,  1861,  a*id 
men  who  entered  the  same  service  since  that  day  to  the  end  of  1862,  en- 
listed in  this  State 22,526 

30,257 


These  numbers  are  allotted  here  pro  rata  of  time ;  in  another  place  will  be  found  the 
evidence  on  which  the  claim  is  based;  this  would  make,  in  fact,  the  total 255,338 


A  record  of  which  the  State  and  the  outgoing  Governor  could  well  be 
proud,  and  which,  more  than  any  thing  else,  showed  the  loyalty  and  love 
of  country  of  the  citizens  of  New  York.

kN  the  ist  day  of  January  a  new  administration  came  in,  and  Horatio 
Seymour  took  the  gubernatorial  chair  of  the  state,  appointing,  during 
his  term  of  office,  the  following  as  members  of  his  military  staff: 
Adjutant-General,  John  T.  Sprague,  an  officer  of  the  Regular  Army; 
Inspector-General,  Josiah  T.  Miller  of  Seneca  Falls ;  Judge-Advocate-General, 
Nelson  J.  Waterbury  of  New  York  city ;  Surgeon-General,  John  V.  P.  Quack- 
enbush,  of  Albany;  Quartermaster-General,  S.  Visscher  Talcott,  of  Albany; 
Commissary-General  of  Subsistence,  Anthony  Eichoff,  of  New  York,  re- 
signed August  i,  1863,  and  succeeded  by  Charles  G.  Halpine,  of  New  York 
city;  Paymaster-General,  John  D.  Van  Buren,  of  New  Windsor;  Engineer-in- 
Chief,  Isaac  Vanderpoel,  of  Albany;  Chief  of  Ordnance,  the  constitutional 
Commissary-General,  Benjamin  Welch,  Jr.,  of  Buffalo,  who  died  April  14, 
1863,  and  was  succeeded  by  James  A.  Farrell,  of  Hudson;  Aides-de-Camp, 
Bleecker  Tibbits,  of  Albany,  from  October  21,  1863,  and  Major  Frederic 
Shonnard,  Sixth  New  York  Volunteer  Artillery,  of  Yonkers,  from  August  3, 
1864;  .Military  Secretary,  William  Kidd,  of  Albany,  from  February  15,  1863. 
The  change  of  administration  indicated  no  change  in  the  support  by  the 
State  of  the  General  Government  in  its  defense  of  the  Union.  In  his  message 
to  the  Legislature  Governor  Seymour  took  occasion  to  say :  "  While  our 
soldiers  are  periling  their  lives  to  uphold  the  Constitution  and  restore  the 
Union,  we  owe  it  to  them,  who  have  shown  an  endurance  and  patriotism  unsur- 
passed in  the  history  of  the  world,  that  we  emulate  their  devotion  in  our 
field  of  duty." 

The  Legislature  assembled  on  the  6th  day  of  January  in  its  eighty-sixth 
session  and  was  composed  of,

This  Legislature,  like  its  predecessors,  promptly  did  all  in  its  power  to 
support  the  contest,  and  passed  laws,  legalizing  and  confirming  ordinances  and 
acts  of  cities,  towns,  counties  and  villages,  and  enabling  the  same  in  the  future, 
to  raise  money  to  aid  in  recruiting,  and  to  assist  the  families  of  volunteers  in, 
or  who  might  yet  enter,  the  military  service.  February  2 ist,  the  action  of 
Governor  Morgan  offering  in  July  1862,  a  bounty  on  the  part  of  the  state, 
was  confirmed  and  an  appropriation  made  for  the  payment  of  the  debt  con- 
tracted thereby.  April  I7th,  a  law  was  passed  which  provided  a  bounty  of 
one  hundred  and  fifty  dollars  for  each  member  of  the  two  years'  regiments, 
who,  having  served  his  term  of  enlistment,  would  re-enter  the  service  for  not 
less  than  two  years,  and  a  bounty  of  seventy-five  dollars  to  all  others,  who  had 
enlisted  since  November  ist,  1862,  or  would  hereafter  enlist,  for  three  years. 
April  24th,  two  very  important  acts  became  laws  of  the  state ;  the  first  incor- 
porated the  "  Soldiers'  Home,"  and  the  second  authorized  the  Governor  to 
appoint  agents  to  provide  for  the  transportation  and  the  care  of  the  sick, 
wounded,  and  the  dead,  volunteers  of  the  state,  and  appropriated  two  hundred 
thousand  dollars  for  this  purpose.  Among  the  incorporators  of  the  Soldiers' 
Home  were  Lieutenant-General  Scott,  Generals  McClellan,  Wool  and  Wads- 
worth,  and  the  purpose  was  "  to  provide  a  home  and  maintenance  for  officers 
and  soldiers  who  have  served,  are  now  serving,  or  may  hereafter  serve,  in  the 


42  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1863 

volunteer  forces  raised  or  furnished  by,  or  from,  the  State  of  New  York,  who 
by  reason  of  wounds  or  other  disabilities  received,  or  produced,  in  the  service 
of  the  United  States,  or  of  the  State  of  New  York,  shall  be  unable  to  support 
themselves,  and  all  who,  having  been  honorably  discharged,  shall  be  decrepit 
or  homeless  in  their  old  age."  The  management  of  the  Home  was  in  the 
hands  of  trustees,  provided  for  in  the  act.  This  was  the  precursor  of  the 
Soldiers'  Home,  now  in  existence,  and  was  to  be  modelled  mainly  after  the 
Home  of  the  Regular  Army  at  Washington,  D.  C.  The  state  agents  provided 
by  the  second  act,  when  the  law  came  to  be  executed,  furnished  relief  to  the 
sick,  wounded,  furloughed  and  discharged  soldiers  of  this  state,  while  being 
transported  to  and  from  their  homes;  they  ascertained  the  names  and  con- 
dition of  all  patients  from  this  state  in  the  army  hospitals ;  kept  a  register  of 
the  same  and  furnished  information  to  all  who  made  inquiry  concerning  them, 
and  thousands  of  relatives  and  friends  obtained  through  them  accurate  infor- 
mation of  fathers,  husbands,  brothers  and  sons  in  the  service ;  they  facilitated 
the  removal  of  bodies  of  deceased  soldiers  to  their  friends,  when  such  action 
was  desired,  and  later  on,  they  also  assisted  the  discharged  soldiers  in  obtain- 
ing arrearages  of  pay  and  bounty  due  them.  Agencies  were  established  at 
suitable  points,  but  the  main  agency  was  located  in  New  York  city,  where 
quarters  were  also  rented  and  provided  for  the  accommodation  of  volunteers 
of  this  and  other  states,  passing  through  the  city;  over  one  hundred  and  ten 
thousand  volunteers  received  relief  and  comfort  at  this  main  agency  —  known 
as  the  Soldiers'  Depot  —  alone,  and  this  depot  was  not  closed  until  March  25, 
1866;  the  sub-agency  at  Albany  was  continued  as  the  Soldiers'  Home  until 
1869,  when  on  the  I5th  of  June  its  inmates  were  transferred  to  the  National 
Home  for  disabled  volunteer  soldiers  then  opened  in  the  State  of  Maine  and 
the  agency  was  closed.  April  27th,  the  Legislature  appropriated  one  million 
dollars  for  the  defense  of  the  harbor  of  New  York  and  the  frontiers  of  the 
state. 

March  3d,  the  President  approved  the  act  of  Congress,  providing  a  law, 
and  prescribing  a  method,  for  drafting  men  for  the  military  service,  whenever 
needed,  and  authorizing  him  to  call  forth  the  National  forces  by  draft.  The 
law  created  a  Provost-Marshal-General  for  the  United  States  and  a  Provost- 
Marshal  for  each  congressional  district  of  the  states;  provided  boards  of 
enrollment  for  each  district  and  other  regulations  for  drafting  men.  May  ist, 
all  enlistments  for  volunteers  were,  by  the  General  Government,  placed 
also  in  charge  of  the  Provost-Marshal-General,  who  divided  this  state  into 
three  districts,  northern,  southern,  and  western,  and  to  assist  him  appointed 
for  these  districts  Acting  Assistant  Provost-Marshal-Generals.  The  officers 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1863  43 

acting  in  these  capacities  were  during  the  existence  of  the  districts,  in  the 
northern:  Brevet  Brigadier-General  Frederick  Townsend,  United  States 
Army;  in  the  southern:  Colonel  Robert  Nugent,  Sixty-ninth  New  York  Vol- 
unteers, until  October  27th,  1863;  Brigadier-General  William  Hays,  United 
States  Volunteers,  until  January  3ist,  1865;  Brigadier-General  E.  W.  Hinks, 
United  States  Volunteers,  until  February  2/th,  1865 ;  and  Major  R.  I.  Dodge, 
Twelfth  United  States  Infantry,  to  the  close  of  the  office;  in  the  western: 
Major  A.  S.  Diven,  Assistant  Adjutant-General  United  States  Volunteers, 
until  December  9,  1864,  Major  John  A.  Haddock,  of  the  Veteran  Reserve 
Corps,  until  April  10,  1865,  and  Major  Samuel  B.  Hayman,  Tenth  United 
States  Infantry,  to  the  close  of  the  office. 

Between  April  25th  and  July  4th,  thirty-three  of  the  two  years'  regiments, 
still  in  the  service,  returned  to  the  state  to  be  mustered  out.  Of  the  Fifteenth 
regiment  of  Engineers  (Fifteenth  Infantry  originally),  Third  Artillery  (Nine- 
teenth Infantry  originally),  the  Third,  Tenth,  and  Twelfth  regiments  of 
infantry,  which  continued  in  the  service,  only  the  men  entitled  to  be  dis- 
charged, returned  to  the  state.  The  Second  Independent  Battery,  formed 
principally  of  two  years'  men,  was  also  mustered  out  These  organizations, 
which  had  left  the  state  with  over  thirty  thousand  men,  brought  back  less 
than  half  that  number ;  their  losses  by  death  alone  had  been  about  four  thou- 
sand officers  and  enlisted  men.  They  had  served  in  many  health-destroying 
campaigns  and  hard-fought  battles;  and,  faithful  servants  of  the  country, 
they  were  now  received  by  the  people  with  proud  approbation,  heartfelt  joy  and 
congratulation.  Happiness  returned  with  them  to  many  hearts,  and  the  sorrow 
for  those,  who  would  never  return,  was  gently  tempered  for  many  more. 

June  1 5th  the  Secretary  of  War  telegraphed  to  the  Governor  to  furnish  as 
large  a  force  of  the  Militia  as  possible,  say  twenty  thousand  men,  for  a  short 
term  of  service.  The  movements  of  the  enemy  had  then  sufficiently  developed 
to  indicate  that  an  invasion  of  Maryland  and  Pennsylvania  was  contemplated. 
The  Governor  replied  "  I  will  spare  no  efforts  to  send  you  troops  at  once," 
and  issued  marching  orders  to  the  National  Guard  of  the  State.  On  the 
1 8th,  the  Adjutant-General  of  the  state  informed  the  Secretary  of  War  that 
about  twelve  thousand  men  were  then  on  their  way  to  Harrisburg.  On  the 
2  ist  Secretary  Stanton  telegraphed  for  Militia  to  be  forwarded  to  Balti- 
more. Troops  continued  to  be  sent  with  the  utmost  dispatch.  July  2d,  the 
Governor  of  Pennsylvania  asked  for  more  troops  and  three  more  regiments 
were  placed  en  route  for  that  state.  The  regiments  which  took  the  field  in 
this  emergency  were  the  Seventh,  Eighth,  Eleventh,  Twenty-third,  Seventy- 
first,  Fifth,  Twelfth,  Twenty-second,  Thirty-seventh,  Sixty-fifth,  Seventy- 


44  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1863 

fourth,  Fourth,  Thirteenth,  Twenty-eighth,  Fifty-sixth,  Sixth,  Twenty-first, 
Forty-seventh,  Fifty-second,  Fifty-fifth,  Sixty-seventh,  Sixty-eighth,  Sixty- 
ninth,  Seventeenth,  Eighteenth  and  Eighty-fourth.  They  were  mustered  in 
the  service  of  the  United  States  for  thirty  days.  Besides  these,  the  detach- 
ments of  volunteers  scattered  throughout  the  state,  were  organized,  equipped 
and  forwarded  to  Harrisburg.  The  National  Guard  received  the  thanks  of 
the  President  and  War  Department  for  their  prompt  response  and  service  on 
this  occasion. 

The  General  Government,  to  replenish  the  army  in  the  field,  had  decided 
in  June,  without  the  issue  of  a  formal  call  for  troops,  to  draft  the  necessary 
number,  and  on  the  nth  of  July  the  state  authorities  received  information 
that  the  draft  was  on  that  day  to  commence  in  New  York  city.  There  were 
then  about  six  hundred  men  of  the  National  Guard  in  the  city ;  the  state  was 
virtually  stripped  of  troops;  disturbances  were  apprehended,  and  the  Adjutant- 
General  was  sent  to  Washington  to  request  a  postponement  of  the  draft,  until 
a  sufficient  military  force  would  be  on  hand.  July  I3th,  there  commenced  in 
New  York  city  a  riot,  unparalleled  for  atrocity  and  fiendishness.  It  is  claimed 
that  originally  a  number  of  honest  working  men  assembled  to  protest  against 
the  draft;  if  so,  this  element  rapidly  disappeared,  and  the  dregs  of  the  city 
took  advantage  of  the  excitement.  It  is  inconceivable  that  any  decent  and 
intelligent  being  can  have  taken  part  in  the  riot.  All  available  state  troops 
were  ordered  to  New  York  city,  and  as  the  Hudson  River  Railroad  was  torn 
up,  they  were  directed  to  take  steamers  at  Albany.  The  troops  in  the  Harbor, 
Regulars  and  Volunteers,  Navy  and  Marine,  one  company  from  West  Point; 
and  one  from  New  Jersey,  arrived  on  the  I3th;  and  the  Seventh  regiment  of 
the  National  Guard  on  the  i6th.  These  troops  and  the  magnificent  police 
of  the  city  checked  the  mob  and  broke  the  wild  phantasy  of  the  miserable 
creatures;  and  on  the  I7th  law  and  order  reigned  once  more  supreme  in  New 
York  city.  In  other  localities  disturbances  were  feared,  but  did  not  take 
place ;  in  one  or  two  places,  however,  riots  were  prevented  by  the  presence  of 
troops  only.  The  draft  was  for  the  time  suspended,  but  took  place  in  August 
without  any  further  disturbance. 

October  I7th,  the  President  called  on  the  country  for  three  hundred 
thousand  men,  and  the  quota  of  this  State  was  placed  at  eighty-one  thousand 
nine  hundred  and  ninety-three  men.  It  is  proper  to  recall  here  the  fact  that 
since  May  ist,  the  state  did  not  have  authority  to  recruit  men  for  the  army 
at  large.  All  this  was  performed  by  the  Provost-Marshals  under  the  orders 
of  the  Provost-Marshal-General,  and  the  whole  machinery  and  management 
for  procuring  men  was  in  the  hands  of  the  General  Government;  only  the 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1863  45 

recruiting  of  new  companies  and  regiments,  sanctioned  by  the  War  Depart- 
ment, was  left  to  the  state  authorities. 

November  I4th,  Major-General  Dix,  commanding  the  Military  Depart- 
ment of  the  East,  of  which  this  state  then  formed  part,  represented  to  the 
Governor  that  a  necessity  existed  for  the  employment  of  a  military  force  to 
protect  a  portion  of  the  frontier  of  this  state  from  threatened  invasion  by 
traitors  sojourning  in  Canada,  and  asked  that  a  regiment  of  the  National 
Guard  be  ordered  to  report  to  him  for  such  service.  The  Governor  at  once 
placed  the  Seventy- fourth  regiment  of  Buffalo  under  his  orders  and  the 
regiment  entered  the  United  States  service  for  thirty  days. 

The  organizations  in  the  state  on  the  ist  of  January  and  not  fully 
organized  numbered  about  two  thousand  men;  recruiting  was  almost  at  a 
standstill ;  February  23d,  Colonel  H.  S.  Lansing,  Seventeenth  New  York 
Volunteers,  was  placed  in  charge  of  all  the  troops  in  process  of  organization 
in  New  York  Harbor  and  city;  the  incomplete  organizations  were  consoli- 
dated and  the  regiments  formed  turned  over  to  the  United  States. 

About  the  time  the  two  years'  regiments  were  to  return  to  the  state, 
authority  was  received  from  the  War  Department,  to  re-organize  the  same 
or  to  form  new  ones  of  the  returned  volunteers.  Probably  three-fourths  of 
these  men  re-entered  the  service  and  their  example  bore  fruit.  Every  effort 
was  made,  besides  the  authorized  regiments  to  organize  also  full  companies 
for  such  of  the  regiments  in  the  field  as  had  vacancies  for  them.  Still  more 
to  encourage  enlistments  it  was  later  decided,  that  the  state  bounty,  authorized 
by  the  Legislature  in  April,  should  be  paid  to  all  men  enlisting  in  the  army 
for  three  years,  who  should  be  credited  to  the  state  by  the  orders  of  the  War 
Department. 

During  the  year  there  were  organized  and  turned  over  to  the  United 
States  on  the  part  of  the  state  authorities,  of  cavalry :  the  Twelfth ;  Fourteenth ; 
Sixteenth ;  Twentieth ;  First  and  Second  Veteran  regiments ;  nine  companies, 
each,  of  the  Thirteenth  and  Fifteenth ;  ten  companies,  each,  of  the  Eighteenth 
and  Twenty-first ;  six  companies  of  the  Twenty-fourth ;  two  companies  of  the 
Twenty-third,  regiments,  and  three  companies  of  the  Second  Mounted  Rifles ; 
of  artillery :  four  companies  of  the  Eleventh ;  five  companies,  each,  of  the  Thir- 
teenth and  Sixteenth;  ten  companies  of  the  Fourteenth;  eleven  companies  of 
the  Fifteenth;  one  company  of  the  Third,  regiments,  and  the  Thirty-third 
Independent  Battery;  of  sharpshooters:  the  Sixth,  Seventh,  Eighth  and  Ninth 
companies ;  of  engineers :  one  company  for  the  Fifteenth  regiment ;  and  of 
infantry :  the  Seventeenth  Veteran,  the  One  Hundred  and  Sixty-eighth,  the 
One  Hundred  and  Seventy-eighth  regiments;  four  companies  of  the  Fifth 


46  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1863 

Veteran,  three  companies  for  the  Sixty-third  regiments,  and  two  companies 
for  the  Independent  Battalion. 

The  One  Hundred  and  Sixty-eighth  and  One  Hundred  and  Seventy- 
seventh  regiments  of  infantry,  and  the  Ninth  company  of  sharpshooters,  nine 
months'  organizations,  were  mustered  out  October  3ist,  September  loth,  and 
August  5th,  1863,  respectively.

This  Legislature  passed  laws  to  promote  the  re-enlistment  of  volunteers, 
and  to  encourage  the  enlistment  of  persons  into  organizations  already  in  the 
service;  it  authorized  the  boards  of  supervisors  of  counties  to  borrow  money 
and  to  levy  taxes  for  the  payment  of  bounties  to  volunteers,  or  for  the  expenses 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1864  49 

of  their  enlistment,  for  aid  to  their  families,  to  pay  any  liabilities  incurred 
therefor,  or  that  may  hereafter  be  incurred;  it  legalized  the  ordinances  of 
municipalities  and  other  corporations,  already  passed,  for  the  same  purposes; 
it  appropriated  means  to  provide  grounds  for  the  final  resting  place  of  the 
remains,  and  for  monuments  to  perpetuate  the  memory  of  the  soldiers  of  this 
state,  who  fell  in  the  defense  of  the  Union  on  the  battle-fields  of  Gettysburg 
and  Antietam;  it  perfected  an  amendment  to  the  Constitution  of  the  State, 
providing  for  the  vote  of  electors  while  in  the  military  service  of  the  United 
States,  and  passed  a  law  for  the  protection  of  the  civil  rights  of  the  citizens 
of  the  state,  while  serving  in  the  army  or  navy  of  the  country. 

Special  permission  was  received  from  the  War  Department  to  recruit  two 
regiments  and  one  hundred  companies  for  one,  two,  or  three  years'  service. 
In  organizing  and  completing  these,  difficulties  were  encountered;  the  ma- 
chinery of  the  provost  marshal's  office  gave  greater  facilities  to  citizens,  who 
were  acting  as  recruiting  officers,  than  the  state  could  offer,  and  the  payment 
of  bounty  on  the  part  of  the  state  ceased  under  the  operations  of  the  law  on 
the  3  ist  of  March. 

On  the  2ist  of  April  the  Secretary  of  War  requested  the  Governor  to 
furnish  one  or  two  regiments  of  Militia  to  guard  deserters,  stragglers,  etc., 
being  forwarded  to  the  army.  On  the  23d  of  the  same  month,  Major-General 
Dix,  by  the  authority  of  the  President,  called  on  the  Governor  for  one  or  two 
more  regiments  to  occupy  the  defenses  of  New  York  harbor.  July  5th,  the 
Secretary  of  War,  a  rebel  force  having  invaded  Maryland,  requested  the 
Governor  to  furnish  a  military  force  to  serve  not  more  than  one  hundred  days, 
to  which  the  Governor  replied :  "  I  will  do  what  I  can."  The  necessary  steps 
to  comply  with  these  requests  were  promptly  taken,  and  the  following  regi- 
ments entered  the  United  States  service  for  one  hundred  days:  the  Sixty- 
ninth,  Eighty-fourth,  Ninety-third,  Fifty-fourth,  Fifty-sixth,  Seventy-seventh, 
One  Hundred  and  Second,  Twenty-eighth,  Ninety-eighth,  Ninety-ninth,  Fifty- 
eighth;  First  Battalion  of  artillery  and  companies  A  and  B  of  the  Fiftieth 
regiment;  for  thirty  days  the  Thirty-seventh  and  Fifteenth. 

In  August,  September  and  October  there  were  again  appearances  of 
possible  disturbances  on  the  northern  frontiers  of  the  state,  and  all  the  neces- 
sary steps  were  taken  by  the  state  Government  to  defend  them;  the  Militia 
along  the  frontier  was  ordered  to  be  in  readiness  for  instant  service  and  por- 
tions of  the  Sixty-fifth  and  Seventy-fourth  regiments  of  the  National  Guard 
were  in  October  and  November  placed  on  active  duty,  until  later  in  November 
the  General  Government  took  charge  of  the  protection  of  the  frontier. 

The  term  of  service  of  a  large  number  of  the  volunteer  organizations 
expired  in  the  course  of  this  year  and  they  returned  to  the  state  for  final 


50  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1864 

discharge.  Many  regiments  had  re-enlisted  in  the  field  in  the  latter  part  of 
1863  and  early  part  of  this  year,  they  also  returned  to  the  state  on  veteran 
furlough,  invariably  taking  the  field  with  increased  numbers.  All  these 
organizations  met  in  the  state  with  brilliant  and  joyful  receptions  and  ovations, 
showing  fully  the  high  appreciation  of  their  services  by  the  people,  and  the 
respect  entertained  by  all  for  the  country's  brave  defenders. 

In  the  course  of  the  year  there  were  recruited,  organized  and  forwarded 
by  the  state  authorities,  of  cavalry :  six  companies  for  the  Second ;  three  com- 
panies, each,  for  the  Thirteenth  and  Fifteenth;  two  companies,  each,  for  the 
Eighteenth  and  Twenty-first ;  nine  companies  for  the  Second  Mounted  Rifles ; 
six  companies  for  the  Twenty-fourth;  the  Twenty-second  and  Twenty-fifth 
regiments,  complete ;  of  artillery :  one  company,  each,  for  the  Third  and  Sixth ; 
seven  companies,  each,  for  the  Thirteenth  and  Sixteenth,  and  two  companies 
for  the  Fourteenth  regiments ;  of  engineers :  one  company  for  the  Fifteenth, 
and  two  companies  for  the  Fiftieth  regiments;  of  infantry:  one  company,, 
each,  for  the  Fifty-seventh,  Sixty-third,  Eightieth,  One  Hundred  and  Twenty- 
fourth,  One  Hundred  and  Thirty-seventh,  One  Hundred  and  Forty-second 
and  One  Hundred  and  Fifty-ninth ;  three  companies,  each,  for  the  Sixty-ninth 
and  Ninetieth ;  six  companies  for  the  One  Hundred  and  Eighty-seventh ;  nine 
companies  for  the  One  Hundred  and  Eighty-eighth,  and  the  Seventh  Veteran ; 
the  One  Hundred  and  Seventy-ninth,  One  Hundred  and  Eighty-fourth,  One 
Hundred  and  Eighty-fifth,  One  Hundred  and  Eighty-sixth  and  One  Hundred 
and  Eighty-ninth  regiments,  complete. 

The  accounts  between  the  State  and  the  United  States  as  to  the  number 
of  men  furnished  by  the  former  since  1861  were  not  brought  into  harmony 
until  after  July  this  year;  the  differences  existing  caused  a  great  deal  of 
annoyance  at  times,  but  were  finally  settled  to  the  satisfaction  of  all. 

With  this  year  closed  the  administration  of  the  second  war  Governor  of 
the  State,  Horatio  Seymour;  and  during  it  the  state  furnished  men  for  the 
defense  of  the  country: 

In  1863.  Militia  for  thirty  days'  service 14475 

Volunteers,  through  the  authorities  of  the   State.      14,805

men  credited  to  the  State  in  February,  1864,  for  service  in  the  navy,  but  properly 
apportioned  to  the  years  1861  and  1862,  as  enlisted  during  those  years 16,722

1863,  but  not  credited,  as  shown  later  on,  pro  rata  of  time 3.940 

Enlistments  in  New  York  in  the  U.  S.  Navy  during  the  war,  but  not  credited,  less

/%  MOTHER  change  in  the  administration  of  the  state  took  place  with 
TA  this  year,  and  Reuben  E.  Fenton  was  inaugurated,  January  ist,  as 
^  V  the  Chief  Magistrate  of  the  Empire  State.  In  his  message  to  the 
Legislature  the  Governor  stated  that  on  the  ist  of  December  last, 
the  state  was  credited  by  the  War  Department  with  an  excess  of  men  fur- 
nished of  five  thousand  three  hundred  and  one,  and  recommended  that  the 
laws  relating  to  bounties  paid  by  localities  should  be  amended  so  as  to  fix  the 
maximum  amount  which  each  locality  could  raise  by  legal  taxation,  and  to 
enable  them  to  raise  and  pay  these  bounties  with  a  view  to  future  contin- 
gencies, so  that  men  could  be  obtained  in  advance  of  future  calls,  and  he  con- 
cluded his  message  as  follows  :  "  The  Constitution  of  the  Union  makes  it 
the  duty  of  the  National  Government  to  maintain  for  the  people  of  all  the 
States  republican  governments.  It  is  no  less  the  duty  of  each  state  to  throw 
its  whole  weight  and  influence  firmly  on  the  side  of  this  great  fundamental 
requirement.  This  Government  our  fathers  intended  to  establish  and  trans- 
mit as  a  legacy  to  posterity.  Irrespective  of  the  divisions  into  states,  we  are 
called  upon  to  maintain  and  perpetuate  the  trust.  Eighty  years  of  enter- 
prise, prosperity  and  progress  have  not  lessened  our  obligations,  nor  checked 
our  devotion  to  the  great  cause  of  civil  liberty.  It  is  not  a  mistake  to  assume 
that,  whatever  exigency  may  follow,  whether  domestic  or  foreign,  the  great 
body  of  the  people  will  go  forward  to  meet  and  overcome  it  with  the  same 
firm  and  irresistible  energy  which  characterized  our  ancestors,  and  has 
marked  the  subsequent  course  of  our  civilization.  In  this  patriotic  deter- 
mination of  the  people  for  unity,  liberty  and  the  Constitution,  I  shall,  at  all 
times,  earnestly  join." 

As  his  military  staff  the  Governor  appointed  :  Adjutant-General,  William 
Irvine,  of  Corning;  Inspector-General,  George  S.  Batcheller,  of  Saratoga 
Springs;  Judge-Advocate-General,  Alexander  W.  Harvey,  of  Buffalo;  Quar-

Such  duties  as  fell  to  the  Legislature  to  promote  the  prosecution  of  the 
war,  were  promptly  carried  out  by  it.  February  loth,  an  act  was  passed 
establishing  a  uniform  system  of  bounties  throughout  the  state,  and  assuming 
their  payment  by  the  state.  This  act  contemplated  and  allowed  the  payment  of 
a  bounty  of  two  hundred  and  fifty  dollars  to  every  drafted  man ;  of  three 
hundred  dollars  to  every  volunteer  enlisted  for  one  year's  service;  of  four 
hundred  dollars  to  every  volunteer  enlisted  for  two  years;  of  six  hundred 
dollars  to  every  volunteer  enlisted  for  three  years;  and  according  to  length 


IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1865  55 

of  service,  the  same  amount  to  each  person  furnishing  a  substitute.  The  law 
was  not  perfect  however,  and  was  amended  from  time  to  time  until  April  7th, 
when  it  was  placed  in  condition  permitting  operations  under  it.  The  intention 
originally,  was  to  have  the  bounty  paid  by  state  officials  to  the  persons,  entitled, 
themselves;  but  owing  to  the  delay  in  perfecting  the  law,  localities  were 
authorized  to  continue  the  system  under  which  they  had  acted  heretofore,  and 
were  finally  reimbursed  by  the  state  in  accordance  with  this  act  and  chapter 
325,  passed  later  in  the  session. 

February  24th,  the  Legislature  passed  a  concurrent  resolution  giving  the 
thanks  of  the  people  of  this  state  to  the  men  who  volunteered  to  defend  the 
integrity  of  the  Union  and  the  flag  which  represents  its  sovereignty,  on  the 
bloody  fields  where  rebellion  has  raised  armed  opposition  to  the  National 
Government. 

On  the  25th  of  March  the  Legislature,  representing  the  people,  in 
concurrent  resolutions,  gave  thanks  to  Brigadier-General  N.  Martin  Curtis, 
the  Third,  One  Hundred  and  Twelfth,  One  Hundred  and  Seventeenth,  One 
Hundred  and  Forty-second,  Forty-seventh,  Forty-eighth,  One  Hundred  and 
Fifteenth,  One  Hundred  and  Sixty-ninth  regiments  of  Infantry  and  the 
Sixteenth  regiment  of  Artillery,  New  York  Volunteers,  commanded  respec- 
tively by  Captain  James  Reeves,  Colonel  John  F.  Smith,  Lieutenant-Colonel 
Francis  R.  Meyer,  Colonel  Albert  W.  Barney,  Colonel  Christopher  MacDonald, 
Lieutenant-Colonel  W.  B.  Coan,  Lieutenant-Colonel  Nathan  Johnson,  Colonel 
Alonzo  Alden  and  Major  F.  W.  Prince  for  the  gallant  achievements  at  Fort 
Fisher,  North  Carolina. 

December  19,  1864,  the  President  called  for  three  hundred  thousand 
men,  and  January  17,  1865,  notice  was  received  that  the  quota  of  the  state  was 
sixty-one  thousand  and  seventy-six  men.  To  avoid  a  general  draft  in  the 
state,  authority  was  asked  and  obtained  from  the  War  Department,  to  organize 
new  regiments  and  independent  companies.  When  on  the  I4th  of  April 
the  Secretary  of  War  ordered  the  discontinuance  of  recruiting  and  of  the 
draft,  the  State  Military  Department  had  turned  over  to  the  General  Govern- 
ment :  five  companies  for  the  Twenty-sixth  regiment  of  Cavalry ;  one  com- 
pany, each,  for  the  Seventy-fifth,  and  the  One  Hundred  and  Ninetieth;  two 
companies  for  the  One  Hundred  and  Ninety-first;  the  One  Hundred  and 
Ninety-second,  One  Hundred  and  Ninety-third,  and  One  Hundred  and  Ninety- 
fourth  regiments,  complete;  and  the  Thirty-fifth  and  a  number  of  other, 
incomplete,  independent  companies,  of  infantry;  and  the  state  had  received 
credit  on  this  last  call  and  quota,  as  having  furnished,  34,196  enlistments,  to 
which  should  be  added  enlistments  in  the  Navy  made  in  the  state  during  the 
war  but  not  credited,  pro  rata  of  time,  568 ;  total  34,764. 


56  IN  THE  STATE  —  IN  1865 

June  7th,  the  Governor  issued  the  following  congratulatory  address  to  the 
soldiers  from  this  state :  "  Soldiers  of  New  York :  your  constancy,  your 
patriotism,  your  faithful  services  and  your  valor  have  culminated  in  the  main- 
tenance of  the  Government,  the  vindication  of  the  Constitution  and  the  laws 
and  the  perpetuity  of  the  Union.  You  have  elevated  the  dignity,  brightened 
the  renown,  and  enriched  the  history  of  your  State.  You  have  furnished  to 
the  world  a  grand  illustration  of  our  American  manhood,  of  our  devotion  to 
liberty,  and  of  the  permanence  and  nobility  of  our  institutions.  Soldiers! 
your  State  thanks  you,  and  gives  you  the  pledge  of  her  lasting  gratitude.  She 
looks  with  pride  upon  your  glorious  achievements  and  consecrates  to  all  time 
your  unfaltering  heroism.  To  you  New  York  willingly  intrusted  her  honor, 
her  fair  name  and  her  great  destinies;  you  have  proved  worthy  of  the 
confidence  reposed  in  you,  and  have  returned  these  trusts  with  added  lustre 
and  increased  value.  The  coming  home  of  all  our  organizations,  it  is  hoped,  is 
not  far  distant.  We  welcome  you  and  rejoice  with  you  upon  the  peace  your 
valor  has  achieved.  Your  honorable  scars  we  regard  as  the  truest  badges  of 
your  bravery  and  the  highest  evidences  of  the  pride  and  patriotism  which 
animated  you.  Sadly  and  yet  proudly  we  receive  as  the  emblems  of  heroic 
endurances  your  tattered  and  worn  ensigns,  and  fondly  deposit  these  relics  of 
glory,  with  all  their  cherished  memories  and  endearing  associations,  in  our 
appointed  repositories.  With  swelling  hearts  we  bade  God  speed  to  the 
departing  recruit;  with  glowing  pride  and  deepened  fervor  we  say  welcome! 
to  the  returning  veteran.  We  watched  you  all  through  the  perilous  period  of 
your  absence,  rejoicing  in  your  victories  and  mourning  in  your  defeats.  We 
will  treasure  your  legends,  your  brave  exploits,  and  the  glorified  memory 
of  your  dead  comrades,  in  records  more  impressive  than  the  monuments  of 
the  past,  and  enduring  as  the  liberties  you  have  secured.  The  people  will 
regard  with  jealous  pride,  your  welfare  and  honor,  not  forgetting  the  widow, 
the  fatherless,  and  those  who  were  dependent  upon  the  fallen  hero.  The 
fame  and  glory  you  have  won  for  the  State  and  the  Nation,  shall  be  trans- 
mitted to  our  children  as  a  most  precious  legacy,  lovingly  to  be  cherished 
and  reverently  to  be  preserved." 

The  end  has  come,  and  at  last  the  greatest  of  rebellions  was  suppressed; 
the  army  was  gradually  disbanded,  and  the  sons  of  New  York  returned  to 
their  state,  victors  in  a  just  and  glorious  cause.  It  is  not  necessary  to  describe 
their  reception  at  their  homes.  The  joy  of  the  people  was  tempered  by  the 
knowledge  of  the  sacrifices  made  by  all,  and  that  with  the  many  who  gave 
their  lives  to  save  this  country  and  its  people,  was  numbered  the  man, 
selected  by  God  as  leader  in  this  momentous  and  fearful  struggle. 


IN  THE  STATE  57 

MEN  CALLED  FOR. 
QUOTAS  AND  CREDITS. 

Although  for  a  time  the  accounts  of  the  state  did  not  agree  with  those  of 
the  United  States,  the  figures  of  the  War  Department  as  far  as  they  go,  are 
here  used  and  accepted,  as  their  total  was  also  accepted  by  the  state  in  1864. 

General  Calls. 

Quota.         Credits 

April  I5th,  1861,  the  United  States  Government  took  the  first  decided 
step  toward  offensive  efforts  against  the  rebellion,  the  President  call- 
ing on  that  day  for  seventy-five  thousand  Militia  for  three  months' 
service.  The  quota  assigned  to  this  state,  filled  by  Militia  and  Volunteer 

Militia,  was  13,280 

and  the  War  Department  reports,  as  furnished  by  the  state 13,906 

On  the  3d  of  May,  1861,  the  President  issued  a  proclamation  calling  into 
service  thirty-nine  regiments  of  volunteer  infantry,  and  one  regiment  of 
cavalry,  forty-two  thousand  and  thirty-four  men,  for  a  service  of  three 
years,  unless  sooner  discharged.  A  quota  was  not  assigned,  but  at  the 
request  of  the  President,  the  Governor  called,  July  25th,  for  twenty-five 
thousand  volunteers. 

Congress  in  its  acts  of  July  22d,  25th  and  3ist,  1861,  authorized  the 
President  to  accept  the  services  of  volunteers  for  three  years  in  such 
numbers,  not  exceeding  one  million,  as  he  might  deem  necessary  for  the 
purpose  of  repelling  invasion  and  suppressing  insurrection.  A  formal 
call  was  not  issued,  but  men  and  regiments  were  furnished  by  the  state  by 
the  authority  of  the  War  Department,  under  the  act  of  Congress  passed 
July  25th,  1861. 

Before  the  next  call  it  became  necessary  to  determine  the  quotas  of 
the  states  for  1861.  This  was  done  in  June,  1862,  by  apportioning  the 
number  of  men  in  the  field,  five  hundred  and  forty-eight  thousand  one 
hundred  and  eighty- four,  among  the  states.  The  quota  of  New  York 

was  placed  at  109,056 

and  the  state  was  credited,  including  all  men  furnished  since  the  call  of 

April  I5th,   1861,  with 120,231 

Under  the  call  of  the  President  of  July  2d,  1862,  for  three  hundred 
thousand  men  for  three  years'  service,  there  were  required  from  this 

state  • 59,705 

and  furnished 78,004 

It  soon  becoming  apparent  that  under  this  last  call  men  would  not  be 
obtained  to  fill  up  the  regiments  in  the  field,  the  President  ordered,  August 
4th,  1862,  a  draft  of  three  hundred  thousand  Militia  to  serve  for  a  term  of 
nine  months.  The  draft,  for  reasons  stated  elsewhere,  did  not  take  place 

in  this  state,  and  on  the  quota  of 59,705 

there  were  furnished  by  voluntary  enlistment 1,781 

Under  the  act  passed  by  Congress  March  3d,  1863,  the  Provost-Marshal- 
General  of  the  United  States,  without  a  formal  call  on  the  state,  caused 
a  draft  in  part  to  take  place  in  July  and  August.  The  men  received 
thereby  were  credited  on  the  next  regular  call  for  troops. 

October  I7th,  1863,  the  President  issued  a  call  for  three  hundred  thou- 
sand men,  to  fill  the  companies  and  regiments  in  the  field;  a  quota  was  not 
assigned.

Quota.          Credits. 

February  1st,  1864,  another  call  was  made;  this  time  for  five  hundred 
thousand  men,  to  include  the  number  called  for  October  17th,  1863.    The 

quota  of  the  state  was  placed  at 81,993 

for  a  service  of  three  years,  and  there  were  credited,  including  the  men 
drafted  in  1863,  and  fifteen  thousand  nine  hundred  and  twelve  men,  who 
paid  the  legal  commutation  75.751 

March   I4th,   1864,  followed  another   call,  this   time   for  two  hundred 

thousand  men  for  three  years'  service;  and  on  the  quota  of 32,794 

the  state  received  credit,  including  two  thousand  two  hundred  and  sixty- 
seven  men  who  paid  commutation,  for 44,207 

Under  the  call  of  July  l8th,  1864,  for  five  hundred  thousand  men,  the 
quota  of  the  state,  reduced  by  excess  of  credits  on  previous  calls,  was 

placed  at 77,539 

and  there  were  credited  to  the  state  forty-five  thousand  and  eighty- 
nine  men  for  a  service  of  one  year;  two  thousand  one  hundred  and 
twenty-eight  men  for  a  service  of  two  years ;  thirty-six  thousand  five  hun- 
dred forty-seven  men  for  three  years'  service;  seventy- four  men  for 
four  years'  service,  and  five  men  who  paid  commutation,  total 83,843 

The  quota  of  the  state,  under  the  last  general  call  of  December  igth 

1864,  for  three  hundred  thousand  men,  was  placed  at 61,076 

and  on  this  call  there  were  furnished  up  to  April  I4th,  1865,  when  re- 
cruiting and  drafting  was  discontinued,  for  one  year's  service,  nine  thou- 
sand one  hundred  and  fifty  men ;  for  two  years'  service,  one  thousand  six 
hundred  and  forty-five  men ;  for  tfiree  years'  service,  twenty-three  thou- 
and  three  hundred  and  twenty-one  men;  for  four  years'  service,  sixty- 
seven  men ;  paid  commutation,  thirteen  men ;  total 34, 196 


Quota  of  the  general  calls 495,148 

Total  credit  on  the  general  calls 452,819 

Special  Calls. 

May  24th,  1862,  the  War  Department  requested  the  Governor  to  for- 
ward regiments  of  the  Militia  for  three  months'  service;  a  quota  was  not 
specified,  and  the  state  furnished  of  the  National  Guard 8,588 

Under  the  requests  of  the  President  for  Militia  for  short  terms  of  ser- 
vice, dated  April  23d  and  July  5th,  1864,  the  War  Department  fixed  the 

quota  at 12,000 

and  there  were   furnished  by  the  state   from  the  National   Guard   for 

three  months  and  one  hundred  days,  including  recruits  forwarded  later...  5,640 


Total   of  all  quotas    507,148 

Total  of  credits  and  enlistments '. 467,047 

The  Adjutant-General  of  the  United  States  Army  under  date  of  Novem- 
ber Qth,  1880,  supplemented  by  a  statement  dated  July  I5th,  1885,  reports  the 
total  number  of  enlistments  made  under  the  various  calls  of  the  President,  to 
have  been  2,865,028,  including1  therein  86,724  who  furnished  commutations, 
but  not  taking1  into  consideration  the  enlistments  for  a  period  of  less  than 
sixty  days.  He  credits  this  state  as  having-  furnished  of  these  enlistments 
467,047,  including  18,197  who  paid  commutation,  but  not  including  the  thirty 


IN  THE  STATE  59 


days'  men.     In  proportion  to  the  total,  the  enlistments  credited  to  this  state 
are  as  i  to  6.134,  or  16.30  +  per  cent. 

In  this  statement  there  is  a  credit  included  for  enlistments  in  the  Regular  Army 
of  only  6,089,  while  as  will  be  seen,  the  state  justly  claims  an  additional  credit  of..  12,671 

For  service  in  the  United  States  Navy  and  Marine  there  were  credited  to  the 
state  42,155  enlistments,  but  here  again,  as  will  be  shown  later,  the  state  is  justly 
and  fairly  entitled  to  credit  for  additional  enlistments  to  the  number  of 8,781 

June  I5th,  1863,  the  War  Department  called  for  Militia  for  short  term 
service.  The  state  furnished  at  this  call,  for  a  service  of  thirty  days,  of 
the  National  Guard I3,97i 

November  I4th,  1863,  Major-General  Dix,  commanding  the  Depart- 
ment of  the  East,  made  a  request  for  an  armed  force  for  the  protection 
of  the  frontiers  of  the  state,  and  received  for  a  service  of  thirty  days,  of 
the  National  Guard  '. 504 

Under  the  requests  of  the  President  for  Militia  for  short  terms  of  ser- 
vice, dated  April  2jd  and  July  5th,  1864,  the  War  Department  fixed  the 
quota  at  12,000,  but  gave  credit  only  for  the  three  months'  and  one  hun- 
dred days'  men  and  recruits  forwarded  later.  There  were  furnished  by 
the  state  under  these  calls,  for  a  service  of  thirty  days,  from  the  Na- 
tional Guard  791 


Total  thirty  days'  men  for  whom  credit  has  not  been  received 15,266 


Total  of  additional  credits  claimed 36,718 

This  added  to  the  number  credited  as  furnished  under  the  general  and 
special  calls,  will  make  the  total  furnished  by  this  state  503,765,  or  in  round 
numbers  and  allowing  liberally  for  errors,  not  less  than  five  hundred  thousand. 

CREDITS  DUE  THE  STATE. 
For  Service  in  the  Regular  Army. 

The  statement  of  the  Adjutant-General  of  the  United  States  Army, 
dated  July  I5th,  1885,  estimates  the  number  of  men  in  the  Regular  Army 
during  the  war  at  67,000.  As  far  as  can  be  determined  from  the  reports  of 
the  Assistant  Provost-Marshals-General  of  this  state,  as  published  in  the 
reports  of  the  Adjutant-General  of  New  York  for  the  years  1863  to  1865, 
the  number  of  men  credited  to  the  state,  enlisting  or  re-enlisting  in  the 
Regular  Army,  is  6,089,  and  covers  only  the  period  of  the  war  from 
December  1863,  to  April,  1865,  for  men  were  not  credited  for  such  enlist- 
ments prior  to  December,  1863. 

There  were  in  the  Regular  Army,  July  i,  1861,  as  officially  reported, 
16,422  officers  and  enlisted  men;  up  to  this  time  the  large  cities  of  this  state 
were  the  principal  recruiting  fields  of  that  army,  and  taking  therefore  from 
this  number  but  one-fifth  (by  no  means  an  over-estimate),  as  having  been 
enlisted  in  this  state,  would  entitle  New  York  to  a  credit  of 3,284 


60  IN  THE  STATE 


As  already  stated  from  December,  1863,  to  April,  1865  — 
seventeen  months  —  there  were  credited  to  the  state  for  enlistment 
in  the  Regular  Army  6,089  men ;  and  it  is  but  fair  to  suppose  that 
the  state  furnished  from  July  i,  1861,  to  November,  1863  —  twenty- 
nine  months  —  a  proportionate  number,  and  an  additional  credit  is 
therefore  claimed  of 10,387 


Total  additional  claim  for  credit  for  service  in  the  Regular 
Army I 

Add  to  this  credit  the  number  of  men  found  to  have  been 
credited 6,089 


and  the  total  of 19,760 

will  give  the  number  of  men,  who  it  is  claimed,  served  in  the  Regular  Army 
of  the  United  States,  and  were  enlisted  in,  or  credited  to,  New  York. 

Under  orders  of  the  War  Department  the  enlistment  or  transfer  of 
volunteers  into  the  Regular  Army  was  permitted  in  1862  and  part  of  1863, 
and  it  is  estimated  that  probably  one  thousand  volunteers  of  this  state  were 
thus  transferred;  to  avoid  all  appearance  of  making  excessive  claims  these 
one  thousand  men  are  deducted,  and  on  the  part  of  the  state  claim  is  made 
for  additional  credit,  for  service  in  the  Regular  Army,  for  only  12,671  men. 

For  Service  in  the  Navy  and  Marine  Corps. 

For  service  in  the  Navy  and  Marine  Corps,  men  were  not  credited  to 
New  York  until  February,  1864,  and  then  credit  was  received  for  28,427,  as 
having  been  enlisted  in  this  state  since  April  I5th,  1861.  The  Adjutant- 
General  of  the  United  States  Army,  under  date  of  July  I5th,  1885,  credits 
New  York  with  35,144  enlistments  in  the  Navy,  which  includes  no  doubt 
those  enlisted  in  the  Marine  Corps,  a  few  hundred  at  the  most.  From  the 
statements  of  the  Assistant  Provost-Marshals-General  it  appears  however, 
that  credit  was  given  the  state  for  41,380  such  enlistments. 

The  Secretary  of  the  Navy,  under  date  of  April  loth,  1884,  in  a 
communication  to  the  United  States  Senate,  reported  the  number  enlisted  in 
the  Navy  between  April  I5th,  1861,  and  February  24th,  1864,  to  have  been 

67,200  men,  of  whom  there  were  credited  to  this  state 28,427 

that  the  number  enlisted  between  February  24th,  1864,  and  the  3Oth 

day  of  June,  1865,  was  37,577,  of  whom  were  credited  to  this  state. .       13.728 

42,155 


IN  THE  STATE  61 


that  the  number  enlisted  during  the  war,  but  not  credited  to  any 

state,  was  20,177,  of  whom  were  enlisted  in  this  state 6,817 


Total 48,972 

The  Secretary  reports  further,  that,  not  including  the  men  who 
were  in  service  April  15,  1861,  the  total  number  enrolled  during  the 

war  was 124,954 

of  this  number  the  men  credited  to  New  York  are  39.19  per  cent. 
The  report  of  the  Secretary  is  accepted  as  correct. 

But  there  must  be  added  the  number  of  men  in  service  April 
ist,  1 86 1,  which  an  annual  report  of  the  Navy  places  at  7,600  men; 
and  of  this  number  there  is  claimed  as  due  to  this  state  the  same 
percentage  that  has  been  found  of  those  enlisted  between  April  1 5th, 
1 86 1,  and  June  3Oth,  1865  as  due  to  New  York,  namely  39.19  per 
cent.,  or 2,964 


This  would  make  the  total  number  who  served  in  the  Navy 
during  the  war,  132,554,  of  whom  there  came  from  this  state. .  . .       51,936 


For  a  time  volunteers  were  permitted  to  enlist  in,  or  to  be  transferred  to, 
the  Navy,  and  it  is  estimated  that  at  the  most  one  thousand  men  were  thus 
transferred;  these  require  to  be  deducted  from  the  claims  made  here  for 
additional  credit. 

It  is  accepted  as  a  fact  that  there  were  duly  credited  to  New  York, 
42,155  men,  and  the  remainder,  after  deducting  those  transferred  from  the 
volunteers  (1,000),  an  additional  credit  of  8,781  is  fairly  due  to  the  state. 

For  Service  in  the  United  States  Volunteers. 

In  his  statement  of  July  I5th,  1885,  the  Adjutant-General  U.  S.  Army 
estimates  the  number  of  officers  and  enlisted  men  who  served  in  this  body 
at  about  11,000,  but  as  far  as  this  state  is  concerned  only  the  officers  of  U.  S. 
Volunteers  appointed  from  this  state,  and  four  companies  of  Berdan  or 
First  U.  S.  Sharpshooters  are  claimed  as  due  to  New  York,  about  1,375 
officers  and  enlisted  men.  These  were  no  doubt  duly  credited  at  the  time 
by  the  proper  authorities. 


62  IN  THE  STATE 


Por  Service  in  the  United  States  Veteran  Volunteers   (Hancock's  Veteran 

Corps) . 

In  the  statement  of  the  Adjutant-General  U.  S.  A.,  already  quoted,  the 
number  of  men  who  served  in  this  body,  is  given  as  10,833,  but  records  are 
not  available  from  which  even  an  approximate  number,  of  those  furnished 
by  this  state,  could  be  obtained.  As  shown  under  "  Quotas  and  Credits,"  etc., 
New  York  furnished  of  all  the  enlistments  16.30+  per  cent;  allow  the  same 
per  centage  of  those  who  served  in  the  United  States  Veteran  Volunteers, 
and  the  state  would  be  entitled  to  credit  for  1,770  men  for  service  in  this 
branch  of  the  army.  As  these  were  veterans,  who  had  served  in  the  war 
before,  and  their  entry  into  the  service  was  undoubtedly  credited  at  the  time, 
claim  cannot  be  made  for  extra  credit. 

For  Service  in  the  Veteran  Reserve  Corps. 

The  number  of  officers  and  enlisted  men  who  served  in  this  corps  is 
stated  as  60,508,  and  the  portion  of  this  number  due  New  York,  based  on 
the  same  percentage  as  in  the  foregoing  case,  would  be  9,862  men.  These 
were  men  transferred  from  the  volunteers,  or  enlisted  after  a  service  in  the 
volunteers,  and  have  without  doubt  all  been  duly  credited  to  the  state.  In 
this  number  are  included  222,  who  re-enlisted  as  veterans  in  this  corps,  and 
were  specifically  credited  to  New  York. 

For  Service  in  the  Colored  Troops. 

In  the  afore-mentioned  statement  the  number  of  colored  troops  in  the 
United  States  service  is  reported  as  178,975;  the  state  is,  however,  credited 
with  but  4,125,  and  although  evidence  is  on  file  in  the  office  of  the  Adjutant- 
General  of  New  York  that  5,829  men  are  claimed  as  due  the  state,  claim 
for  extra  credit  is  not  made,  and  the  number  reported  by  the  United  States 
authorities  is  accepted  as  correct  and  final.  The  Twentieth,  Twenty-sixth 
and  Thirty-first  regiments  of  these  troops  were  organized  in  this  state. 

For  Service  in  the  Volunteers  of  Otlier  States. 

That  men  of  this  state  entered  the  volunteers  of  other  states,  is  a  well- 
known  fact.  A  correct  number  of  them  is  impossible  to  obtain,  but  it  is 
believed  that  they  numbered  at  least  five  hundred,  and  that  the  state  received 
due  credit  for  the  same. 


IN  THE  STATE  63 


For  Service  in  the  Militia  and  National  Guard. 

Of  the  Militia  and  National  Guard  there  entered  in  the  service  of  the 
United  States  for  short  periods  38,028  officers  and  enlisted  men,  of  whom 
there  served  for  one  hundred  days  in  1864,  5,019;  for  three  months  in  1861, 
8,534;  in  1862,  8,588;  in  1864,  621;  total,  17,743  men;  for  thirty  days  in 
1863,  in  the  Pennsylvania  campaign,  13,971,  at  Buffalo  in  November  504, 
in  1864,  in  New  York  harbor  791,  total  15,266  men.  The  Adjutant- 
General  of  the  U.  S.  Army  gives  the  state  credit  for  all,  except  the  thirty 
days'  men;  and  there  is  therefore  a  credit  claimed  on  this  account  of  15,266. 

For  Service  in  the  Volunteers  of  the  State. 

For  service  in  this  branch  of  the  armies  of  the  United  States,  370,232 
enlistments  are  claimed;  this  number,  originally  estimated,  has  been  con- 
firmed by  count  and  estimates  in  part  of  the  number  of  men  who  served' in 
each  volunteer  organization  of  the  state,  appearing  in  another  place.  Drafted 
men  and  substitutes,  are  counted  here  as  volunteers. 

For  Men  who  Commuted  their  Service. 

Under  the  laws  regulating  the  drafts,  those  drafted  were  accorded  the 
privilege,  by  payment  of  a  certain  sum,  to  commute  their  service;  the  money 
thus  obtained  was  used  by  the  Provost-Marshal-General  of  the  United  States 
to  pay  bounties  to  volunteers  re-enlisting  in  the  service.  The  Adjutant- 
General  of  the  Army  credits  this  state  on  this  account  on  the  call  of  February 
ist,  1864,  with  15,912;  on  that  of  March  I4th,  1864,  with  2,267;  of  Juty 
]8th,  1864,  with  5;  of  December  I9th,  1864,  with  13;  total  18,197  men. 

For  Representative  Recruits. 

In  July,  1864,  the  Provost-Marshal-General  of  the  United  States  appealed 
to  the  patriotism  and  generosity  of  persons  not  required  by  law  to  perform 
military  duty,  but  who  possessed  ample  means,  to  cause  themselves  to  be 
represented  in  the  service  by  men  procured  by  themselves.  Under  this  appeal 
1,292  representative  recruits  were  obtained,  and  credited  to  the  respective 
states,  President  Lincoln  being  one  of  the  first  to  respond  to  the  appeal. 
From  the  State  of  New  York  were  obtained  119  men.  While  this  may  seem 
a  small  number,  it  is  susceptible  of  proof  that  citizens  of  this  state,  before 
this  official  appeal,  had  quietly  procured  men  to  serve  in  the  army  as  their 
representatives.  Those  of  this  state  who  acted  on  his  suggestion,  are  reported

Recapitulation  of  Credits. 

The  state  furnished  for  service  in  the  war  503,765  enlistments  and  this 
number  of  men  served  in  the  general  organizations  of  the  military  forces  of 
the  United  States  as  follows : 

In  the  Regular  Army  of  the  United  States,  19,760;  of  whom  1,000  are  estimated  to 
have  been  transferred  from  the  volunteers;  being  properly  credited  to  the  volun- 
teers, they  are  deducted  here,  leaving  credit  for  service  in  this  branch. . . ., 18,760 

In  the  United  States  Navy  and  Marine  Corps,  51,936;  of  whom  1,000  are  estimated 
to  have  been  transferred  from  the  volunteers;  being  properly  credited  to  them, 
they  are  here  deducted,  leaving  credit  for  service  in  this  branch 50,936 

In  the  United  States  Volunteers,  1,375 !  of  whom  about  380  are  estimated  to  have 
been  transferred  from  the  volunteers  as  officers,  and  as  they  are  a  proper  credit 
for  the  volunteers,  they  are  deducted  here,  leaving  credit  for  service  in  this 
branch 995 

In  the  United  States  Veteran  Volunteers,  1,770;  these  men  served  their  first  enlist- 
ment no  doubt  in  the  volunteers  of  the  state ;  their  enlistment  in  this  branch  con- 
stitutes, however,  a  special  credit,  and  was  so  credited  to  the  state i,77O 

In  the  United  States  Veteran  Reserve  Corps,  9,862;  most  all  of  these  men  were 
transferred  from  the  volunteers  and  are  properly  credited  to  them;  of  those  who 
enlisted  in  this  corps  after  a  term  of  service  in  the  volunteers  no  estimate  can  be 
made,  but  the  state  received  special  credit  for  such  re-enlistments  to  the  num- 
ber of  ., 222 

In  the  United  States  Colored  Troops,  the  number  credited  to  the  state  by  the  Adju- 
tant-General of  the  army  4,125 

In  the  volunteers  of  other  states,  500  men,  estimated,  making  a  credit  of 500 

In  the  Militia  and  National  Guard  of  the  state,  as  already  shown 38,028 

Men  who  commuted  their  service,  and  are  credited  to  the  state  officially 18,197 

The  remainder  of  the  credit  claimed  for  the  state  represents  enlistments  in  the 

volunteers  of  this  state  to  the  number  of 370,232 

Making  the  total  credit  of  enlistments  due  New  York,  as  already  claimed 503,765

66  IN  THE  STATE 


DRAFTS. 

The  census  of  1860  gave  this  state  a  population  of  3,880,735,  of  whom 
1,933,532  were  males,  and  1,947,203  were  females,  being  an  excess  of  the 
latter  over  the  former  of  13,671. 

Under  the  call  of  August  4th,  1862,  for  three  hundred  thousand  nine 
months'  men,  the  state  authorities  made  arrangements  for  a  draft,  which 
however  were  not  carried  out.  The  enrollment,  not  entirely  completed,  showed 
a  population  of  3,829,707 ;  had  it  been  completed  it  would  probably  not  have 
varied  much  from  the  census  of  1860,  notwithstanding  the  number  of  men 
who  had  entered  the  service  and  left  the  state.  Subject  to  military  duty, 
according  to  the  laws  of  the  state,  that  is  between  the  ages  of  18  and  45 
years,  were  found  to  be  764,603  males,  and  of  these  had  been  declared  exempt 
from  military  service  at  the  time  proceedings  closed  139,158.  The  average 
ratio  of  the  number  enrolled  to  the  population  was  one  to  five  and  one-tenth ; 
the  ratio  of  exempts  to  the  number  enrolled  was  one  to  five  and  five-tenths. 

When  in  1863  the  General  Government  took  charge  of  drafting  and 
general  recruiting,  drafts  when  made,  were  only  for  such  numbers  as  would 
insure  the  filling  of  the  quota  called  at  the  time.  The  enrollment  made  in  the 
state,  under  the  supervision  of  the  Provost-Marshal-General's  Bureau  from 
June,  1863,  to  April,  1865,  numbered  431,462  men,  or  22.31  per  cent  of  the 
male  population,  or  ii.n  per  cent  of  the  total  population  according  to  the 
census  of  1860.  This  enrollment  included  males  between  the  ages  of  20 
and  45.  The  total  number  drawn  was  151,488;  of  these  there  were  held  to

18,197;  not  examined  for  various  reasons,  48,743,  and  exempted  after 
examination,  68,006  men.  Of  those  exempted  from  military  duty,  32,086 
were  exempted  for  physical  or  mental  disability,  or  31.22  per  cent  of  those 
examined  —  102,745  men.

PERIODS  OF  SERVICE  OF  THE  MEN  ENLISTED. 

Of  the  men  credited  to  this  state  there  served  during  the  war,  or  rather 
enlisted  for  service,  for  periods  ranging  from  thirty  days  to  four  years  — 
for  thirty  days,  15,266;  for  three  months,  17,743;  for  one  hundred  days, 
5,019;  for  nine  months,  1,781;  for  one  year,  including  estimated  number  in 
the  Navy,  62,500;  for  two  years,  34,723;  for  three  years,  348,395;  for  four 
years,  141;  commuted  their  service,  18,197;  total,  503,765,  or  all  reduced 
to  a  three  years'  standard,  considering  those  who  commuted  their  service  as 
three  years'  men,  412,568. 

These  converted  into  three  years'  enlistments  would  give 

15,266  thirty  days'  men 424  three  years'  men

485,568  Total   number    of    actual   enlistments,   converted    into   three 

years'  service,  equal  to 395,369 

It  may  be  claimed  that  this  number  represents  also  practically  the  number 
of  individuals  in  service.  But  see  "  Number  of  individuals  in  service " 
page  46. 


68  IN  THE  STATE 


INDIVIDUALS  IN  THE  SERVICE. 

The  numbers  so  far  dealt  with  represent  enlistments  or  entries  into  service, 
and,  as  many  men  entered  twice,  three  and  some  even  four  times,  the  number 
of  enlistments  does  not  represent  the  number  of  individuals  who  served  during 
the  war.  Positive  data  or  information  is  not  on  record  on  this  subject,  and 
to  obtain  this  number  of  individuals  recourse  must  be  had  to  estimates. 

It  is  well  known,  that  of  the  Militia  and  National  Guard  a  very  large 
proportion  entered  the  volunteer  service  after  the  expiration  of  a  short 
service  in  the  Militia,  and  that  a  considerable  number  performed  a  second 
and  third,  and  some  even  a  fourth,  short  service  in  the  Militia ;  also  that  a 
number  of  discharged  volunteers  served  short  terms  in  the  National 
Guard,  especially  in  1863.  Estimate  then,  that  of  those  in  service  in  1861 
—  8,534  —  aH  re-entered  the  service  in  one  way  or  another  except 500 

That  of  those  in  service  in  1862  —  8,588 — all  re-entered  the  service  or 
had  been  in  service  except 500 

That  of  those  in  service  in  1863 — 14,475  —  all  re-entered  the  service  or 
had  been  in  service  except 3,ooo 

And  that  of  those  who  served  in  1864  —  6,431  —  all  served  again  or  had 
served  before  except  3,ooo 


This  would  make  the  number  of  individuals  who  rendered  service  in  the  Militia 
or  National  Guard  exclusively 7,000 

Of  those  who  served  in  the  Regular  Army,  from  this  state 19,760 

there  are  known  to  have  re-enlisted  to  the  credit  of  the  state  2,137,  but  it 

is  estimated  that  the  number  re-enlisted  during  the  war  is  at  least 2,500 

These  deducted  would  make  the  number  of  individuals  from  this  state  serving 
in  the  Regular  Army  exclusively 17,260 

Of  those  who  served  in  the  Navy  and  Marine  Corps,  from  this  state,  in- 
cluding  the    51,936 

it  is  estimated  in  the  absence  of  any  kind  of  data  on  the  subject,  that  ten 

per  centum  entered  the  service  twice  at  least,  this  would  be 5,194 

And  these  deducted,  would  make  the  number  of  individuals  from  this  state  serv- 
ing in  the  Navy  and  Marine  Corps  exclusively 46,74.2 

Those  who  served  in  the  United  States  Volunteers  as  of  this  state,  of  whom 
about  380  were  officers  cransferred  from  the  state  Volunteers,  represent  individuals 
to  the  number  of 1,375 

Those  who  served  in  the  United  States  Veteran  Volunteers,  1,770,  and  those  who 
served  in  the  U.  S.  Veteran  Reserve  Corps  —  9,862,  total  11,632,  of  whom  the 
former  had  served  one  enlistment  to  the  credit  of  the  state  and  the  latter  were 
transferred  from  the  state  volunteers,  less  222  re-enlisted,  represent  individuals  to 
the  number  of 11,410 

Those  who  served  in  the  U.  S.  Colored  Troops  and  were  credited  to  the  state  — 
4,125,  and  763  transferred  from  the  state  volunteers  as  officers  to  the  Colored 
Troops,  total,  4,888,  represent  but  one  entry  into  the  service,  and  individuals  to  the 
number  of  4,888 

Those  who  served  in  the  Volunteers  of  other  States,  but  credited  to  this,  rep- 
resent individuals  to  the  number  of 5°° 


Total  .  89,175 


IN  THE  STATE  69 


Of  those  who  served  in  the  Volunteers  of  this  State  —  370,232  —  there 
have  been  accounted  for  and  require  to  be  deducted 

those  who  were  transferred  to  the  U.  S.  Volunteers  as  officers 380 

those  who  served  in  the  U.  S.  Veteran  Volunteers i,77o 

those  who  were  transferred  to  the  U.  S.  Veteran  Reserve  Corps 9,642 

those  who  were  transferred  to  the  U.  S.  Colored  troops  as  officers 763 


Total 12,555 

To  this  must  be  added  the  men  transferred  to  the  Regular  Army  and 
the  U.  S.  Navy,  in  total 2,000 


Total  to  be  deducted 14,555 


Of  the  remainder  credited  to  the  state  volunteers  —  355,677  — 
it  is  estimated 

that  of  the  nine  months'  men,  1,781,  there  re-entered  the  service.        1,200 

that  of  the  two  years'  men  who  entered  the  service  in  1861  — 
30,131  —  there  re-entered  18,000 

that  of  the  three  years'  men  enlisted  up  to  April  30,  1862,  there 
are  known  to  have  re-enlisted  as  veterans  on  the  field,  and  have 
been  credited  again  from  December,  1863,  to  April,  1864 18,076 

that  of  those  discharged  in  1864  by  reason  of  expiration  of 
their  term  of  service,  there  re-entered  the  service 4,000 

and  that  of  the  men  discharged  for  disability  reported  by  the 
Provost  Marshall  General  in  his  final  report  to  have  been  24,908 
men,  there  probably  re-entered 4,000 


Total  re-entries  into  the  service 45,276 


To  be  deducted  from  the  remainder  of  credits  to  the  state  volunteers  —  355,677 
—  leaving  the  number  of  individuals  exclusively  in  such  service 310,401 


The  total  individuals  thus  obtained  as  having  served  in  the  war  from  this  state 

would  be    399,576 

Or  in  round  numbers  four  hundred  thousand  individuals. 

The  United  States  census  of  1860,  gave  New  York,  a  population  of 
3,880,735,  of  whom  1,933,532  were  males;  based  on  these  figures  the  indi- 
viduals in  service  during  the  war,  from  this  state,  bear  the  ratio  of  i  to  9.7, 
or  10.30  per  cent  of  the  population  of  the  state,  and  of  I  to  4.8  or  20.68 
per  cent  of  the  male  population  of  the  state. 

Not  until  July,  1862,  was  there  an  effort  made  on  the  part  of  the 
state  to  keep  an  account  with  localities  of  the  number  of  men  furnished  by 
them.  In  1863,  the  recruiting  fell  in  the  hands  of  the  United  States  authori- 
ties and  the  state  was  furnished  with  information  only  as  to  the  number 
credited  on  calls  and  not  to  localities.  To  confuse  matters  still  more,  many 
men  went  from  their  homes  to  other  places  to  enlist.  There  is  therefore  no 
means  to  say  how  many  men  were  furnished  by  any  one  locality.  The  only 
way  to  arrive  at  an  approximate  number,  is  to  take  the  male  population  of 


70  IN  THE  STATE 


such  locality  in  1860,  take  of  this,  20.68  per  cent,  and  the  figure  derived  will 
not  be  the  exact,  but  only  about,  the  number  of  men  furnished  by  that 
locality. 

NATIVITIES  OF  THE  INDIVIDUALS. 

Mr.  B.  A.  Gould,  actuary  of  the  United  States  Sanitary  Commission,  in 
his  "  Investigations  in  the  Military  and  Anthropological  Statistics  of  the 
American  Soldier,  1869,"  gives  the  nativity  of  337,800  individual  soldiers 
from  this  state,  based  on  that  of  230,267  men  obtained  from  official  records, 
as  follows:  Natives  of  the  United  States,  203,622;  of  foreign  birth,  134,178. 
Of  those  of  foreign  birth,  19,985  were  born  in  British  America;  14,024  were 
of  English  birth;  51,206  were  born  in  Ireland;  36,680  in  Germany,  and 
12,283  m  other  foreign  countries. 

The  nativities  obtained  by  him  must  have  been  principally  of  enlistments 
made  in  1863,  1864  and  1865;  to  obtain  the  nativity  of  most  of  the  men 
entering  in  1861  and  1862  from  the  records,  except  possibly  company  descrip- 
tive books,  is  as  far  as  this  state  is  concerned,  almost  impossible.  It  is  well 
known  that  more  men  of  foreign  birth  entered  the  service  in  1863  and  1864, 
than  in  1861  and  1862,  and  thus  it  may  be  explained  why  Mr.  Gould's  figures 
of  persons  of  foreign  birth  in  the  service  to  the  credit  of  this  state,  are  so 
large,  39.71  per  cent  of  the  whole,  and  why  they  are  considered  too  high. 

The  history  of  a  regiment  of  the  Regular  Army,  organized  in  July,  1861, 
and  receiving  about  three-fifths  of  its  membership  in  1861  and  1862,  gives  the 
nativity  of  its  3,574  members  as  ascertained  from  official  records.  This 
regiment  received  in  1865  up  to  April  but  a  few  men,  and  in  many  other 
particulars  is  a  fair  example  of  a  regiment  serving  through  the  war ;  estimates 
based  on  the  figures  set  forth  in  that  history,  applied  to  the  men  furnished 
by  this  state,  are  deemed  to  be  more  equitable  than  those  of  Mr.  Gould. 

On  this  basis,  there  would  have  been  of  the  four  hundred  thousand  individuals  279,040 
natives  of  the  United  States,  and  30.24  per  cent  or  120,960  of  foreign  birth.  Of  the  latter 
42,095  are  to  be  credited  to  Ireland;  41,179  to  Germany;  12,756  to  England;  11,525  to 
British  America;  3,693  to  France;  3,333  to  Scotland;  2,014  to  Wales;  2,015  to  Switzerland, 
and  2,350  to  other  foreign  countries. 

In  the  Seventieth  Infantry  served  a  native  of  China,  John  Tommy,  who 
lost  both  arms  and  both  legs  July  2,  1863,  at  the  battle  of  Gettysburg,  and 
died  of  his  wounds  October  19,  1863;  reported  as  a  good  and  brave  soldier; 
in  the  P"orty-third  Infantry  served  a  man  born  in  Hindostan  of  natives  of 
that  country. 


IN  THE  STATE  71 


AGES  OF  THE  INDIVIDUALS. 

Mr.  B.  A.  Gould  in  his  work,  already  referred  to,  gives  the  ascertained 
ages  of  183,281  New  York  volunteers.  Based  on  his  figures,  which  compare 
favorably  with  the  ascertained  ages  of  a  smaller  number  of  men,  there  were  of 
the  four  hundred  thousand  individuals  furnished  by  the  state  at  the  time  of 
their  entry  into  the  service : 

37  thirteen  and  less  years  old;  137  fourteen  years  old;  334  fifteen  years  old;  978  sixteen 
years  old;  1,526  seventeen  years  old;  43,074  eighteen  years  old;  35,427  nineteen  years  old; 
24,638  twenty  years  old;  44,143  twenty-one  years  old;  29,875  twenty-two  years  old;  25,133 
twenty-three  years  old;  20,707  twenty- four  years  old;  18,873  twenty-five  years  old;  15,899 
twenty-six  years  old;  13,581  twenty-seven  years  old;  14,517  twenty-eight  years  old;  9,934 
twenty-nine  years  old;  11,946  thirty  years  old;  7,174  thirty-one  years  old;  9,893  thirty-two 
years  old;  7,267  thirty-three  years  old;  6,842  thirty-four  years  old;  8,479  thirty-five  years 
old ;  6,268  thirty-six  years  old ;  4,803  thirty-seven  years  old ;  5,912  thirty-eighl  years  old ; 
4,055  thirty-nine  years  old;  6,890  forty  years  old;  2,767  forty-one  years  old;  5,024  forty-two 
years  old;  4,513  forty-three  years  old;  6,870  forty- four  years  old;  1,814  forty-five  years  old; 
190  forty-six  years  old;  89  forty-seven  years  old;  116  forty-eight  years  old;  50  forty-nine 
years  old;  and  225  fifty  and  over,  years  old. 

Making  the  average  age  25  years,  7  months  and  26  days;  or  taking  into 
consideration  that,  in  order  to  be  accepted,  many  less  than  18  and  21  years 
old,  gave  their  age  as  such,  twenty-five  years.  This  covers  no  doubt  some 
commissioned  officers  but  principally  enlisted  men. 

There  were  by  actual  count  16,873  individuals  who  served  long  enough 
as  commissioned  officers  to  be  entitled  to  be  taken  into  consideration;  or  say 
in  round  numbers  and  to  allow  for  possible  errors  17,000.  The  ages  of  16,721 
of  these  individuals  were  ascertained  to  be  as  follows :  Eighteen  seventeen 
years  old,  538  eighteen  years  old,  683  nineteen  years  old,  742  twenty  years 
old,  1,493  twenty-one  years  old,  1,304  twenty-two  years  old,  1,220  twenty- 
three  years  old,  1,220  twenty-four  years  old,  1,036  twenty-five  years  old, 
921  twenty-six  years  old,  804  twenty-seven  years  old,  777  twenty-eight  years 
old,  639  twenty-nine  years  old,  657  thirty  years  old,  481  thirty-one 
years  old,  545  thirty-two  years  old,  386  thirty-three  years  old,  429  thirty-four 
years  old,  396  thirty-five  years  old,  330  thirty-six  years  old,  286  thirty-seven 
years  old,  297  thirty-eight  years  old,  226  thirty-nine  years  old,  239  forty 
years  old,  154  forty-one  years  old,  181  forty-two  years  old,  134  forty-three 
years  old,  171  forty-four  years  old,  108  forty-five  years  old,  53  forty-six 
years  old,  46  forty-seven  years  old,  35  forty-eight  years  old,  31  forty-nine 
years  old,  141  fifty  years  old  and  over,  making  the  average  age  of  these 
officers  on  entry  into  the  service  27^2  years. 


IN  THE  STATE 


The  foregoing  would  establish  the  average  age  at  time  of  entry  into 
the  service  to  have  been  of  the  commissioned  officers  27^2  years,  and  of  the 
enlisted  men,  25  years. 


WHERE  THE  MEN  WERE  OBTAINED. 

It  is  impracticable,  in  fact  impossible,  to  obtain  any  accurate  figures  of 
the  number  of  men  furnished  during  the  war  by  each  county,  city,  town  and 
village  of  the  state.  The  best  that  can  be  done,  is  to  indicate  here  the  organi- 
zations (original  or  new;  recruits  not  considered)  to  which  the  counties  of 
the  state  contributed  men;  those  marked  *  being  entirely  recruited  in  the 
county,  to  which  they  are  credited,  all  others  only  in  part.  There  were 
recruited : 


IN  THE  STATE  AT  LARGE:

COST  OF  THE  WAR  IN  MONEY. 

The  Legislature  passed  in  1865  an  act  requiring  supervisors,  county 
treasurers  and  certain  city  officials,  to  report  to  the  chief  of  the  Bureau  of 
Military  Records  the  amount  of  money  expended  by  them  officially  for  every 
purpose  connected  with  the  war.  In  his  last  report,  made  in  1868,  the  chief 
of  this  bureau  reported  having  received  statements  from  forty-seven  counties 
to  December  31,  1865;  from  twelve  counties  to  December  31,  1864;  from 
five  cities  to  December  31,  1864;  from  seven  hundred  and  seventy-one  towns 
to  December  31,  1865;  from  one  hundred  and  thirty-two  towns  to  December 
31,  1864;  none  at  all  from  one  county  and  twenty-five  towns.  With  the 
transfer  of  the  bureau  to  the  Adjutant-General's  Department,  the  collection 
of  the  wanting  reports  ceased.  According  to  the  statements  received,  the 
amounts  paid  for  bounties,  fees  and  expenses,  interest  on  loans,  and  for  the 
support  of  the  families  of  soldiers  were: 

In  the  forty-seven  counties,  which  rendered  full  reports $58,523,509  or 

In  the  twelve  counties,  which  rendered  incomplete  reports..  7,404,447  50 

In  the  five  cities,  which  rendered  incomplete  reports 2,694,666  27 

In  the  seven  hundred  and  seventy-one  towns,  which  ren- 
dered full  reports  32,265,128  95 

In  the  one  hundred  and  thirty-two  towns,  which  rendered 

incomplete  reports  4,142,991  60 

$105,030,743  33 

Estimates  based  on  the  reports  received,  where  no  complete, 

or  no  reports  at  all  were  made,  would  give  additional 

amounts : 
For  the  twelve  counties,  which  rendered  incomplete  reports, 

for  1865 $1,851,111  84 

For  the  five  cities,  which  rendered  incomplete  reports,  for 

1865 898,222  09 

For  the  one  hundred  and  thirty-two  towns,  which  rendered 

incomplete  reports,  for  1865 1,380,997  20 

For  the  one  county,  which  rendered  no  report  at  all,  for  the 

whole  period  1,148,797  87 

For  the  twenty-five  towns,  which  rendered  no  reports  at  all, 

for  the  whole  period 1,046,210  oo 

6,325,339  oo 

Voluntary  contributions  and  subscriptions  on  the  part  of  the 
people  were  reported  in  five  hundred  and  thirty-five  towns 
to  have  amounted  to $1,757,184  17 

Add  to  this  estimated  amount,  for  the  remaining  towns... .          1,290,788  85 
The  state  paid  and  expended :  3,047,973  02 

In  organizing,  subsisting,  equipping,  uniforming  and  trans- 
porting Volunteers,  $5,101,873.79;  of  which  the  General 
Government  has  reimbursed  the  state  over  $4,000,000,  and 
more  may  yet  be  obtained ;  but  it  is  estimated  that  owing 
to  lack  of  proper  evidence  of  legal  expenditure,  or  incom- 
plete vouchers,  unless  the  existing  laws  be  modified,  al- 
lowance will  not  be  made  by  the  U.  S.  Treasury  officials 
for  at  least $000,000  oo 


94  IN  THE  STATE 


August  5,  1861,  Congress  placed  a  direct  tax  of  $20,000,000 

upon  the  states;  the  amount  allotted  to  New  York  was 

$2,603,918.32.     The  United  States  Government  has  since 

reimbursed  the  state. 

Bounties  have  been  paid  by  the  state,  under  the  proclama- 
tion of  Governor  Morgan,  and  chapter  184,  Laws  of  1863, 

$9,182,000;  under  chapter  29,  Laws  of  1865,  as  reported 

by  Paymaster-General  Selden  E.  Marvin,  $25,749,243.96; 

total  of  $34.931,243  06 

$35,831,243  96 


Grand  total   $150,235,209  31 


The  amount  credited  to  the  five  cities  does  not  include  voluntary  con- 
tributions and  subscriptions;  and  covers  almost  exclusively  expenses  for 
bounties  only.  Allowance  is  not  made  for  interest  on  loans  subsequent  to 
1865.  Assistance  to  families  of  soldiers  did  not  cease  with  that  year.  Nor 
are  disbursements  for  the  militia  in  July,  1863,  and  at  other  times,  made 
necessary  by  the  war,  included.  Thousands  of  dollars  were  contributed  by 
the  people  in  the  shape  of  provisions,  clothing,  hospital  and  sanitary  supplies. 
While  there  is  scarcely  a  doubt  that  the  cost  of  the  war  in  actual  outlay  of 
money  to  the  state  and  its  people  was  two  hundred  millions,  the  sum  of 
one  hundred  and  sixty  millions  only  is  here  claimed  as  being  easily  susceptible 
of  proof. 

BUREAU  OF  MILITARY  RECORDS  AND  RELICS. 

On  the  2Oth  December,  1862,  Governor  Morgan  established  a  bureau  in 
the  office  of  the  Adjutant-General,  to  be  known  as  the  Bureau  of  Military 
Statistics.  The  Legislature  of  1863  recognized  this  bureau  by  making  an 
appropriation  for  its  support  and  defining  the  purpose  for  which  it  was 
established.  In  1864,  the  Legislature  repealed  the  act  of  1863,  made  the 
institution  an  independent  bureau,  and  declared  the  objects  of  said  bureau  to 
be:  to  collect  and  preserve  in  a  permanent  form  the  name  of  every  person, 
who  has  volunteered  or  been  mustered,  or  who  may  hereafter  volunteer  or  be 
mustered,  into  the  service  of  the  General  Government,  since  April  15,  1861, 
and  the  personal  history  of  such  person  while  in  such  service,  so  far  as  the 
same  can  be  ascertained;  a  record  of  the  service  of  the  several  regiments, 
including  an  account  of  their  organization  and  subsequent  history,  and  also 
an  account  of  the  aid  afforded  by  the  several  towns,  cities  and  counties  of  the 
state.  In  1865,  the  Legislature  changed  the  name  of  the  bureau  to  that  of 
"  Bureau  of  Military  Record,"  and  later,  May  nth,  passed  an  act  to  provide 
a  suitable  repository  for  the  records  of  the  War  of  the  Rebellion  and  for  other 


IN  THE  STATE  95 


purposes;  the  fire-proof  structure  to  be  called  the  "  Hall  of  Military  Record." 
The  city  of  Albany  was  to  furnish  the  ground;  $75,000  were  voluntarily 
to  be  subscribed  by  the  people  of  the  state,  and  when  $35,000  had  been 
received  work  might  be  commenced.  The  city  of  Albany  offered 
suitable  ground;  voluntary  subscriptions  to  the  amount  of  $35,353.69 
were  collected,  and  are  still  deposited  with  the  Treasurer  of  the  State; 
but  the  building  was  not  commenced,  owing,  probably,  to  the  building 
of  the  New  Capitol,  in  which  it  was  supposed  suitable  accommodation 
would  be  provided  for  the  safety  and  care  of  the  relics  and  records  of 
the  war.  April  20,  1864,  fifty-one  battle-flags  were,  in  the  presence  of  the 
Governor,  the  Senate  and  the  Assembly,  presented  to  the  state;  July  4,  1865, 
another  presentation  of  flags  took  place  in  the  presence  of  the  Governor  and 
General  Grant.  These  flags  and  many  other  relics  of  interest  are  deposited 
in  the  bureau.  May  8,  1868,  by  an  act  of  the  Legislature  the  bureau  was 
discontinued  as  an  independent  office,  and  retransferred  to  the  department 
of  the  Adjutant-General  of  the  state,  and  the  appropriation  limited  to  the 
taking  care  of  the  relics.  April  30,  1887,  the  Legislature  authorized  the 
Adjutant-General  to  establish  in  his  office  a  "  Bureau  of  Records  of  the  War 
of  the  Rebellion,"  and  made  a  small  appropriation  to  carry  out  the  act  of  1864. 
Since  1896  an  appropriation  has  been  made  each  year  to  complete  the  records 
of  New  York  Volunteers;  this  work  has  been  carried  on  and  finished  as  far 
as  it  could  be  done  with  the  material  on  hand. 

In  this  bureau  have  been  collected  several  thousand  relics  of  the  war; 
it  is  located  on  the  second  floor  of  the  Capitol  in  Albany;  all  the  relics  and 
the  colors  deposited  with  the  state  are  placed  in  airtight  cases  in  the  lobby  on 
that  floor.  The  colors  referred  to  are  as  follows : 


COLORS   OF  THE  SECOND   (HARRIS)    CAVALRY. 

1.  Regimental  color,  blue   silk ;   embroidered  with  likeness   of   Judge   Harris,   "  Harris 
Light  Cavalry,"  and  "  In  God  is  Our  Trust;"  part  of  original  staff. 

2.  Guidon,  silk. 

Two  colors  were  presented  to  this  regiment  at  Arlington  Heights,  December  5,  1861. 
One,  a  National  Standard,  by  Judge  Ira  Harris,  in  whose  honor  the  regiment  was  named; 
and  one,  an  embroidered  color,  by  Judge  Henry  E.  Davies,  whose  son,  J.  Mansfield  Davies, 
was  its  first  commander.  The  former  was  worn  out  on  the  field ;  the  latter,  No.  I,  was  borne 
by  the  regiment  in  all  its  wanderings  and  many  "hard  fought  battles. 


COLORS  OF  THE  THIRD  CAVALRY. 

i.  Staff  with  remnants  of  blue  silk  regimental  flag,  part  of  spearhead  missing,  tassels 
complete.  Upon  one  side  of  banner  appears  the  arms  and  motto  of  the  state,  and  upon 
the  other  side  the  arms  of  the  city  of  New  York  with  the  inscription,  "3rd  New  York 
Cavalry  N.  Y.  Vols.,  presented  by  the  city  of  New  York.''

of  his  brother,  who  was  a  member  of  the  loth  Alabama,  and  who  recognized  him  at  the 
instant  of  discharging  his  piece.  Townsend  subsequently  died  of  his  wounds.  Corporal

Revere,  who  commanded  the  brigade  for  a  time.  It  was  carried  during  the  early  Virginia 
campaigns  in  the  War  of  the  Rebellion. 


142  IN  THE  STATE 


THE  WOMEN  OF  THE  STATE. 

The  successful  prosecution  of  the  war  is  due  to  the  women  of  the  loyal 
states  as  much  as  to  the  men,  and  this  record  would  be  incomplete,  if  it  failed 
to  chronicle  the  patriotism  of  the  women  of  New  York.  Their  faith  cheered 
the  soldier  in  the  dark  days  of  the  war  and  presaged  victory.  Their  prayers 
were  with  him  in  the  camp,  on  the  field  of  battle,  and  on  the  bed  of  pain  and 
of  death.  The  thought  of  the  dear  ones  at  home,  mother,  wife,  sister,  or  the 
chosen  one,  was  comfort  in  the  hardships  of  the  campaign,  encouragement  on 
the  field  of  strife,  and  support  in  adversity.  Next  to  the  Supreme  Ruler, 
women  were  the  soldiers'  mainstay.  The  children  and  orphans  of  the  latter 
became  their  wards;  and  their  efforts  and  deeds  were  felt  from  early  in  April, 
1861,  to  the  end  of  the  struggle  in  the  Christian  and  Sanitary  Commissions; 
in  the  thoughtful  comforts  sent  to  the  field,  and  to  the  hospitals,  where  also 
the  closing  moments  of  many  lives  were  robbed  of  their  bitterness  by  their 
ministrations.  They  fought  as  great  battles  as  the  men,  though  on  different 
fields ;  yes  —  greater  ones.  Willingly,  though  with  pain  and  sorrow,  they 
gave  fathers,  husbands,  sons,  brothers  and  lovers  to  the  country.  With 
staunch  hearts  they  bore  the  ever-present  anxiety  for  their  treasures  in  peril, 
and  gave  them  comfort  with  words  and  deeds.  When  the  sacrifice  of  their 
offering  was  complete,  they  bore  the  loss  and  sorrow,  though  with  broken 
hearts,  as  only  women  can,  uncomplainingly,  unselfishly,  finding  consolation 
in  the  knowledge  of  an  eternal  meeting  and  a  restored  country.  All  honor  to 
their  loyal  and  unflinching  spirit;  to  the  courage  with  which  they  bore  their 
cross ;  to  the  faith  which  upheld  them  in  their  darkest  hour  of  trial.

Affairs  attfc  gtemtsijfls,  &*,  in 

fork  Militia  atti 
took  part 


chronological  list  of  engagements,  etc.,  is  taken  almost  entirely 
-4  from  official  records ;  from  the  official  records  of  the  war,  pub- 

I  I  lished  by  the  War  Department ;  from  monthly  returns,  bi-monthly 
muster-rolls,  and  the  muster-out-rolls  of  organizations;  a  few  of 
the  engagements  were  obtained  through  correspondence  with 
officers.  The  constant  aim  has -been  to  give  correct  dates;  an  effort  attended 
with  more  difficulties  than  would  be  imagined;  official  reports,  in  many  in- 
stances, disagreeing  in  this  particular,  and  often  giving  dates  not  agreeing 
with  other  records.  It  will  be  noticed  that  frequently  several  designations 
are  given  to  the  same  engagement;  the  one  given  first  is  the  name  under 
which  it  is  more  generally  known. 

A  decision  of  the  War  Department  is  to  this  effect :  "  Troops  on  the 
ground  (battle-field),  though  not  engaged,  are  entitled  to  be  credited  with  the 
engagement."  This  rule  has  been  followed,  except  in  minor  affairs,  where 
adherence  to  it  would  make  it  preposterous.  Engagements  of  any  duration, 
as  for  instance,  "  Seven  Days'  Battle,  General  Pope's  Campaign,  Port  Hudson, 


10 


146  IN  THE  FIELD  —  BATTLES,  ENGAGEMENTS,  ETC. 

Red  River  Campaign,  Atlanta  Campaign,  Spotsylvania,  Cold  Harbor,"  etc., 
have  been  subdivided  into  the  more  important  actions  of  which  they  con- 
sisted ;  credit  has  been  given  for  the  general  engagement  to  all  on  the  ground, 
for  the  subordinate  actions  and  affairs  to  those  who,  it  could  be  ascertained, 
took  active  part  therein.  "  Before  Petersburg  and  Richmond,"  implies  service 
before  those  cities,  in  and  out  of  the  trenches,  and  covers  everything,  except 
those  important  actions,  which  are  reported  separately. 

Tables  of  losses  will  be  found  of  the  more  important  engagements ;  these 
are  taken  from  the  official  records  of  the  war.  In  these  tables  are  also  given 
the  numbers  and  names  of  the  brigades  and  divisions  and  numbers  of  the 
corps  in  which  the  organizations  served,  as  they  stood  at  the  beginning  of  an 
action;  where  this  rule  has  not  been  observed,  a  note  after  the  designation 
of  the  engagement  will  explain  the  difference.  Sometimes  the  losses  of 
several  engagements  are  united  in  one,  this  is  also  indicated  by  a  note.  The 
names  of  commanding  officers  of  organizations  are  mostly  from  official 
records;  those  not  from  official  records  were  obtained  from  survivors  of  the 
organizations ;  in  a  few  cases  the  successors  of  those  killed  or  wounded  could 
not  be  ascertained. 

The  letters  found  after  names,  and  other  signs,  indicate:  The  letter  (c) 
that  the  officer  commanded  a  brigade  during  the  action,  if  even  but  for  a 
short  time;  the  letter  (k)  that  he  was  killed;  the  letter  (w)  that  he  was 
wounded;  the  letter  (m)  that  he  was  captured;  the  sign  (*)  that  the  loss,  if 
any,  has  not  been  reported;  (f)  is  a  local  sign,  the  explanation  of  which  will 
be  found  at  the  end  of  the  table  in  which  it  appears.
